Supreme Artist


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?
