A limerick or two on St. Augustine's view of God

My daughter had to present St. Augustine's thoughts to her religion class at Augustana College in a "creative way" so she wrote this limerick. I think it's pretty clever:

God is completely perfect and good
But the world needs more, God understood.
God didn't have to create;
He/She was already great,
But for goodness' sake, God thought (s)he would.

So God saw there was nothing around
And out of nowhere, God made the ground.
God started with nothing
and ended with something:
fish, light, plants, us, potatoes, and sound.
