God's Fate (Yehuda Amichai)

The fate of God
Is now like the fate of
Trees and stones, sun and moon
Which they stopped believing in
When they began believing in Him.

But He is compelled to remain with us:
At least like the trees, at least like the stones.
And like the sun and like the moon and like the stars.

(Yehuda Amichai [1924-2000] is one of the great modern Israeli poets)
