To their apartment deep

 To their apartment deep
No ribaldry may creep
Untumbled this abode
By any man but God --


by Stephen Crane

You tell me this is God?

 You tell me this is God?
I tell you this is a printed list,
A burning candle, and an ass.


by Ambrose Bierce

Piety

 The pig is taught by sermons and epistles
To think the God of Swine has snout and bristles.


by Emily Dickinson

God made no act without a cause

 God made no act without a cause,
Nor heart without an aim,
Our inference is premature,
Our premises to blame.


by Emily Dickinson

God is indeed a jealous God --

 God is indeed a jealous God --
He cannot bear to see
That we had rather not with Him
But with each other play.


by Mother Goose

An Equal


Read my riddle, I pray.
What God never sees,
What the king seldom sees,
What we see every day.


by Thomas Hardy

Epitaph On A Pessimist

 I'm Smith of Stoke aged sixty odd
I've lived without a dame all my life
And wish to God
My dad had done the same.


by Emily Dickinson

How ruthless are the gentle --

 How ruthless are the gentle --
How cruel are the kind --
God broke his contract to his Lamb
To qualify the Wind --


by Carl Sandburg

Losses

 I HAVE love
And a child,
A banjo
And shadows.
(Losses of God,
All will go
And one day
We will hold
Only the shadows.)


by Emily Dickinson

The longest day that God appoints

 The longest day that God appoints
Will finish with the sun.
Anguish can travel to its stake,
And then it must return.


by William Butler Yeats

Statistics

 'Those Platonists are a curse,' he said,
'God's fire upon the wane,
A diagram hung there instead,
More women born than men.'


by Friedrich von Schiller

Inside And Outside

 God alone sees the heart and therefore, since he alone sees it,
Be it our care that we, too, something that's worthy may see.


by Robert Burns

323. Epigram on Miss Davies

 ASK why God made the gem so small?
 And why so huge the granite?—
Because God meant mankind should set
 That higher value on it.


by Dorothy Parker

Harriet Beecher Stowe

 The pure and worthy Mrs. Stowe
Is one we all are proud to know
As mother, wife, and authoress-
Thank God, I am content with less!


by Emily Dickinson

Embarrassment of one another

 Embarrassment of one another
And God
Is Revelation's limit,
Aloud
Is nothing that is chief,
But still,
Divinity dwells under a seal.


by Emily Dickinson

Though the great Waters sleep

 Though the great Waters sleep,
That they are still the Deep,
We cannot doubt --
No vacillating God
Ignited this Abode
To put it out --


by Friedrich von Schiller

A Peculiar Ideal

 What thou thinkest, belongs to all; what thou feelest, is thine only.
Wouldst thou make him thine own, feel thou the God whom thou thinkest!


by Robert Louis Stevenson

The Angler Rose He Took His Rod

 THE angler rose, he took his rod,
He kneeled and made his prayers to God.
The living God sat overhead:
The angler tripped, the eels were fed


by Robert Burns

407. Epigram—Thanks for a National Victory

 YE hypocrites! are these your pranks?
To murder men and give God thanks!
Desist, for shame!—proceed no further;
God won’t accept your thanks for MURTHER


by Anthony Hecht

Paradise Lost Book 5: An Epitome

 Higgledy piggeldy
Archangel Rafael,
Speaking of Satan's re-
Bellion from God:

"Chap was decidedly
Turgiversational,
Given to lewdness and
Rodomontade."


by Robert Louis Stevenson

Hail Guest And Enter Freely!

 HAIL, guest, and enter freely! All you see
Is, for your momentary visit, yours; and we
Who welcome you are but the guests of God,
And know not our departure.


by Emily Dickinson

Should you but fail at -- Sea

 Should you but fail at -- Sea --
In sight of me --
Or doomed lie --
Next Sun -- to die --
Or rap -- at Paradise -- unheard
I'd harass God
Until he let you in!


by Emily Dickinson

Spring is the Period

 Spring is the Period
Express from God.
Among the other seasons
Himself abide,

But during March and April
None stir abroad
Without a cordial interview
With God.


by Stephen Crane

Have you ever made a just man?

 "Have you ever made a just man?"
"Oh, I have made three," answered God,
"But two of them are dead,
And the third --
Listen! Listen!
And you will hear the thud of his defeat."


by Stevie Smith

Conviction (i)

 Christ died for God and me
Upon the crucifixion tree
For God a spoken Word
For me a Sword
For God a hymn of praise
For me eternal days
For God an explanation
For me salvation.
