Poetry of Kansas

The Controlling Power

Back of the centuries
        Standeth God
        To whom past ages
        Are as one day;
From myriad planets
        To flowers which nod,
        He made them all
        In His own way.
Beyond the unseen
        Directeth He
        To whom mere time
        Is valued as naught;
For above the ages,
        Which quickly flee,
        He regardeth only
        The labor wrought.
