A Misunderstanding

What puzzles me about the Resurrection of the Dead Is why the souls in Heaven require it: if it's good Without the body on why ask it back?

Does it prove Hoaven feels the body's lack, Craves its return in non-existent time?

(Which cannot pass, so cannot know a rhyme Or even a thought, where everything has been done).

Does boredom need some ill to fasten on?

How can the Resurrection come about For Heaven, always in that timeless state?

There must be explanation which I've missed: Time solves the problems of the catechist, Supplies the arguments to help out Heaven.

Why should it need argument's help to govern A simple state? I must have missed the point If I can think a non-place out of joint.
