Fool Faith

Said I: "See yon vast heaven shine...

Said I: "See yon vast heaven shine,--
       What earthly sight diviner?
Before such radiant Design
       Why doubt Designer?"

Said he: "Design is just a thought
       In human cerebration,
And meaningless if Man is not
       Part of creation.

"But grant Design,--we may imply
       The job took toil aplenty;
Then why one sole designer, why
       Not ten or twenty.

"But should there be one Source supreme
       Of matter and of motion,
Why mould it like our man-machine
       For daft devotion?"

Said I: "You may be right or wrong,
       I'll seek not to discover . . .
I listen to yon starry song,--
       Still, still God's lover."
