THE POTTER, by                    
First Line: God the potter
Last Line: Better than the others.
Subject(s): God


God the Potter
Made a little cup
Of sweet clay
From the river bed.

And as he worked,
Slapping, patting,
Singing,
He laughed
At an odd little thought.

Some of his laugh
Twisted the handle
Of the serious little cup
Crooked.

He loved that little cup
Better than the others.
