An erlier version
There is an erlier version of this poem, named "In White". You can find a comparison of them here:http://www.starve.org/teaching/intro-poetry/design2.html
(note that there is a possible mistake on this page. As far as I know "Design" was first published during the 1920's, or thereabouts. I'm too busy to check it right now, though.)
"Itzy bitzy" to you all.

Delightful - thanks; somehow, I never came across it before.

Would you like me to send you Hanna Nir's translation to this poem?

One of my favorite sonnets. Not just about the argument from design, perhaps, but also an illustration of how art can impose its own design on the horror of existence.
