A "Moment" Of Eternity

How measures God the Infinite? How long's eternity? Whence came the measurement of time? When will it cease to be? An ancient Chinese proverb gives the answer best of all And draws the finite mind of man to higher realms recall. Far to the north there lies a mount a thousand miles in height. It also is one thousand miles in width of wondrous might. Each thousand years, one tiny bird flies north to trim its beak There on this single mountain top, upon the highest peak. When this great mountain has been worn and is completely gone, It's no more than the changing sky to grey before the dawn. For, as the Gods all measure time, no longer will it be Than just a "moment" in their lives of all eternity!
