TITLE: Creation's Chorale

they say the universe sings an ancient song,
enduring soft echoes of Creation’s voice,
played on strings of starlight harps
by ethereal angels as they rejoice.

they say the whales sing songs at sea,
beckoning others to sing along,
to reach beyond the vast unseen,
to become as one, this chorus strong.

they say the trees sing in the summer breeze,
the rustling maple, the whispering pine,
all brought to life by the breath of the wind,
just one of the hymns of nature’s design.

they say the birds are known by the call they make,
a melody specific to the soul of their kin,
they fill the air with their language of praise,
a message of beauty from a place deep within.

they say that angels do sing in heavenly places,
with words of a language that all understand,
a song filled with glory and beautiful grace,
that falls to the earth, whatever the land.

so whatever the words we’ve learned from our birth,
it is still God’s music that makes us one earth.

Simple verse, but profound thoughts within. Thank you for sharing.

I really loved this. Some great poetic devices and a catchy rythm with a super message. I think you should venture into these woods, or verse, more often.

Great flow, rhythm and rhyme. I especially like the last two lines and how it ties everything together. I agree, perfect title as well.

This is just beautiful. I could hear all the joyous songs being sung giving glory to God.

Beautiful portrayal of the language of God's creation. Good job.
Amanda Brogan12/21/10
Awesome! I love how you show that although God's creation has many different "languages," they are all meant to praise Him.

Beautiful! One of my favorites this week--and my favorite of yours so far.

I love how you have lifted your heart - and ours - in such a way that calls up the eighth and nineteenth psalms. Beautifully done.
