By the rich display of color
Of the red and yellow blooms
That run riot on the vine?
Should the river hide its face
At the vastness of the ocean
And the wildness of the waves
As they lap against the shore?
Should the lemon be ashamed
At the brightness of the orange
And the juice that lies within
Bringing sweetness to the tongue?
Should the little mouse be mortified
To view the jaguar’s strength
And measure his small steps
Beside the big cat’s stride?
Should the poet feel chagrined
When his verse is overlooked
While the work of novel writers
Is both praised and popular?
For God of all created everything,
And for each separate kind of entity
In His divine domain,
He provided gifts with purpose,
So all could find fulfillment
With no need to feel ashamed.
