THE POET

Just as in the beginning was the word
By which He authored heaven earth and sea:
My Father spoke, and thus the thing occurred,
I too am in His perfect poetry.

And as I struggle with a verse I write,
To make it mean the thing I wish to say,
So too must I be awkward in His sight,
But by his grace I am not tossed away.

Perhaps He gives me freedom to revise, 
Or even lets me stray from his design,
A line or two He may choose to excise,
And here or there He may rework the rhyme:

The meaning's His, and yet the choice my own,
When is a person finished, or a poem?
