NOAH'S ARK


God saw that wickedness had fouled his earth,
To a state it could no longer be ignored.
While grieving sadly he chose to destroy it,
Though Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

The Lord told Noah to fashion a great ark
Made of gopher wood and pitch, outside and in.
Three hundred cubits long and fifty in width,
Before the world he knew, would come to its end.

Bring your food, your sons, your wife and your sonís wives
And two of every living sort, be with thee.
For with you Iíll establish my covenant,
And all who are with thee shall survive the sea.

They all marched forth, two by two, into the ark
And waited for God's waters to flood the land.
For forty days and for forty nights,
The fountains of the deep consumed beast and man.

Inside the ark nostrils kept their breath of life,
As the high waters prevailed upon the earth.
Every mountain and every hilltop vanished,
As all within felt the power of God's worth.

The waters from heaven were finally restrained,
And after ten months the tops of mountains were seen.
God had blessed Noah and all who had joined him,
To multiply, plant and fulfill his dream.

Oh, you've allowed us to revisit this wonderful story that we all love! Enjoyed your link to the topic 'control'! Thank you!

Nice poem. It was very cleverly written. Line 9 could be tightened up a little more to flow with the rest of the poem, but I loved the rest of the poem. Good work!

I like most Noah's Ark tales n poems. I agree that line 9 could be tighter, but all round nice work on the poem. God bless, littlelight

Nicely done! I'm sure if we could hear Noah's testimony it would be one of submitting to God's control!! :-)
