Who sits nodding and muttering on the all-too-big throne
What a long, long time, dear God, since you set the
stars in their places,
Girded the earth with the sea, and invented the day and
And longer the time since you looked through the blue
window of Heaven
To see your children at play in a garden....

On the all-too-big throne of Heaven,
And fall asleep with my hands tangled in your grey
