It is folly to fight

Dear God's Plan

by Margaret Snowdon


Dear God’s Plan


The current of life
                 runs e’er away
      to the bosom of God's great ocean;
                                 don't set your force
   'gainst the river's course
                     and think you can alter its motion.

Don't waste a curse
                    on the universe -
      remember, it lived long before you;
  don't butt the storm
                           with your weaker form,
          but bend and let it go o’er you.

The world will never
                         adjust itself
               to suit your whims to the letter;
   some things will go wrong
                                  your whole life long;
         the sooner you know it the better.

It’s folly to fight
                        with the Infinite
                and go under at last in the wrestle -
      the wiser one
                    shapes to Dear God's plan,
          as water shapes into a vessel.
