A poem that conveys a grand sweep of Nature and time in order to elicit the cosmic and the Divine...

Beings Full of Might

The splendor of this lucent scene,
the rising of the golden sun,
and the songs of the epicene
together make the seasons run,
in cycles of time never seen,
in cycles of time yet begun.

The lungs of Nature now respire
with the breath of organic life:
spring and summer, rebirth's desire,
metastasize with earth's wildlife,
which teem and thrive like wildfire
before fall and winter's afterlife.

Do men deserve such grand display?
And from whence come beings full of might,
such as the mystery that day
as when God saith, “Let there be light,”
and then Creation's Milky Way
took form on the first day, and night!?
