The Props assist the House

The Props assist the House
Until the House is built
And then the Props withdraw
And adequate, erect,
The House support itself
And cease to recollect
The Auger and the Carpenter
Just such a retrospect
Hath the perfected Life
A past of Plank and Nail
And slowness then the Scaffolds drop
Affirming it a Soul.
