Creation Made Like Hope

Ethereal and supreme
Of tersest heaven it
  has pronounced a daily storm
While hours have been supreme, it has
  had hours in its
A purple name
  has covered the fans of sovereign
  things about its
Has raised and has rased, but
  there has been no death
  in these mornings

Has experienced and has perched
Has put up with it and has disinvested
Has raised and has razed
Has pondered and has asked
Has said and has raised
