God ask me not to record your wonders I adm

God! ask me not to record your wonders
I admit the stars and the suns
And the countless worlds.
But I have measured their distances
And weighed them and discovered their substances.
I have devised wings for the air
And keels for water
And horses of iron for the earth.
I have lengthened the vision you gave me a million times
And the hearing you gave me a million times
I have leaped over space with speech
And taken fire for light out of the air.
I have built great cities and bored through the hills
And bridged majestic waters.
I have written the Iliad and Hamlet
And I have explored your mysteries
And searched for you without ceasing
And found you again after losing you
In hours of weariness—
And I ask you
How would you like to create a sun
And the next day have the worms
Slipping in and out between your fingers?.
