Who told the lovely flower to grow
With petals six and horn of golden frill?
Who is the artist such a work doth show
As shown in the daffodil?
Who told a mighty sun to hold
A captive planet in a circling arc?
Who is the artist who uses crimson and gold
To usher in the dark?
Who told the clamouring waves to hush,
And likewise lulled the passions of the breath?
Who is the artist with miraculous brush
Can paint in beauty death?
Who gave himself a sacrifice to win
The hearts of men and women in his love?
Who is the artist transforms even sin,
And makes the hawk a dove?
