Order of Things

"There where the weaver
would patch his cloth,
Where an able mathematician
would correct his errors,
Where the artist would
retouch his masterpiece
as yet imperfect
or recently damaged,
Nature prefers to start
all over from clay,
from chaos;
and this squandering is
called the order of things."

- Marguerite Yourcenar (1903 - 1987)
