                                                                                    Done Counting 

                                                                                    Rest now
                                                                                    there’s an end

                                                                                    Done counting.

                                                                                    Stones or stars
                                                                                    all there are

                                                                                    Done counting.

                                                                                    Drops of rain
                                                                                    grains of sand
                                                                                    Full of ever
                                                                                    no more and

                                                                                    Done counting.

                                                                                    Wholly much
                                                                                    out of numbers
                                                                                    Past one more
                                                                                    into wonder

                                                                                    Done counting.
