WHAT builds or builds up never is in vain.
For much is daily torn down, naturally,
And may need care, repair, or outerwear.
And so we search for ways, or maybe means
To bring disorder back to unity.
This much is plain to see:
But then disorder never leaves for long.
It is how humans are,
And how the universe conducts itself —
That what is new must needs give way to time,
For time at last to bring forth something new.
