Their Height in Heaven comforts not

Their Height in Heaven comforts not
Their Glory nought to me
‘Twas best imperfect as it was
I’m finite I can’t see

The House of Supposition
The Glimmering Frontier that
Skirts the Acres of Perhaps
To Me shows insecure

The Wealth I had contented me
If ’twas a meaner size
Then I had counted it until
It pleased my narrow Eyes

Better than larger values
That show however true
This timid life of Evidence
Keeps pleading “I don’t know.”
