TREES

by: Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918)

I THINK that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.


Psalm 52: 8-9 "But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever. I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it: and I will wait on thy name; for it is good before thy saints."

Out in the Fields with God

Out in the Fields with God
(Elizabeth Barrett Browning, 1806-1861).

The little cares that fretted me,
I lost them yesterday
Among the fields above the sea,
Among the winds that play,
Among the lowing of the herds,
The rustling of the trees,
Among the singing of the birds,
The humming of the bees.

The fears of what may come to pass,
I cast them all away
Among the clover-scented grass,
Among the new mown hay,
Among the rustling of the corn,
Where drowsy poppies nod,
Where ill thoughts die and good are born,
Out in the fields with God.



1 Peter 5:6-7
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.

The heavens declare the glory of the God and the firmanent showeth His handiwork Psalm 19:1

These are beautiful poems sister mc_simmons

How glorious it is to worship the Lord in the awesome beauty of His creation. How much creation speaks of His beauty and love.

'He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning. God is crazy about you'.

Thank you for posting these sister, the Lord bless you

Consider the lilies of the field…even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Matthew 6:28-29

The whole earth is full of His glory. Isaiah 6:3

Oh thank you sister Julia. Yeah, everytime I think of and witness God's firmament, my soul leaps in joy. No single reason to sigh. Indeed, "The Great I am" is the sole "God of wonders beyond our galaxy". Hallelujah!

God's Grandeur

The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
It will flame, like shining from shook foil;
It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod (1)?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare, nor can foot feel, being shod(2).
And for all this, nature is never spent;
There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs--
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent (3)
World broods (4) with warm breast and with ah! bright wings (5)
---Gerard Manley Hopkins, , 1877

(1) Psalm 2:9. Jesus wields a rod to smash prideful kings.
(2) Shod feet. The loss of pristine innocence, the need to be clothed after sin entered the world.(3) Bent world. (a) tired (b) bent but not broken; crooked, inperfect (c) curved, as an egg over which the Spirit broods
(4) Brooding of the Holy Spirit---see Genesis 1.
(5) As one turns from the dark west horizon (earth's tiredness, coming as a result of man's sin) back to the eastern horizon, where the sun is rising, he sees the promise of a new day under the Spirit's care. This borrows from the Bible's Dove symbolism (breast and wings), which are bright and colorful as the beautiful sunrise

God over Nature
by: emcee

God created the world for a purpose
His providence declares He mighty force
As omniscient and omnipotent ruler of the universe
None among false messengers could converse
(Psalm 19:1)

With all nature under His command
God has the power to control the laws throughout the land
No need for Him to intervene miraculously in worldly ill
For all these are ultimately the result of His will
(Jeremiah 14:14)

God created earth for the sake of man
Who is a part of His wonderful plan
Every deed is weighed, every hair is measured
Every bruise counted, that’s how man’s treasured
[(COLOR="blue"]Jeremiah 32:19)[/COLOR]

The Creator has entrusted His perfect will
The decree of natural laws the world needs to fulfill
In order to be guided towards safe destiny
Be it in a drop of rain , thunderclap or intensity
(Psalms 37:23)
