We consider bibles and religions divine –
       I do not say they are not divine,

I say they have all grown out of you, and
     may grow out of you still,

 

It is not they who give the life, it is you
     who give the life,

 

Leaves are no more shed from trees,
             or trees from the earth, than they are
       shed out of you.
