God's Creation from A – Z
Armadillos, anteaters, alligators, God has made them all
Bees, bears, buffalos, and the wild bird's call
Cats, cactuses, caterpillars, glorify His name
Dandelions, daffodils, dragonflies, they all do the same
Elephants, egrets, eelgrass, how can man say "There is no god"?
Ferrets, frogs, fish and flies, we suppress the truth, I agree with a nod
Goats, giraffes, geckos, all of nature sings His praise
Horses, hedgehogs, hippos, let us join them for all our days
Icebergs, iguanas, all manner of insects, Holy is the Lord most High
Jaguars, jackrabbits, jellyfish, His praise rises in the sky
Kangaroos, koalas, kookaburras, declare the work of His hands
Lamas, lemurs, lions, and the fruit of the land
Mice, mongoose, minks, all of these He did create
Nautiluses, newts, nuts, His handiwork is very great
Orangutans, octopi, oceans, beautiful is God's art
Penguins, parrots, pelicans, I don't know where to start
Quail, quagga, quahog, magnificent are all these things
Rainbows, roses, rhinos, this truth through creation rings
Starfish, seahorses, salamanders, God's majesty is shown
Thunder, turtles, tea leaves, let this through the world be known
Urchins, uintaite, the universe, praise Him with joyful song
Vultures, vanilla, valonia, come sing creation throng!
Waterfalls, wilder beasts, whales, yes! come shout and sing
X-ray fish, xenopus, xenosaurs, to the Creator, our King
Yaks, yams, yeast, Great is the Lord, see what he has done
Zebras, zenith, zucchini, Yet he loves us, each and every one
quagga: South African, yellow-stripped zebra
quahog: large, edible clam, also called the hard-shelled clam
uintaite: pure form of asphalt mined in the Uinta Mountains, which are a part of the Rocky Mountains in Utah, USA.
valonia: an evergreen oak native to Southern Europe and Western Asia
xenopus: African clawed toad
xenosaur: nocturnal lizard native to Central America and Southern China
zenith: the highest point of the sky
Author's Note: Today, October 30, 2007, I have finally completed this poem. I started working on this in the middle of May. Little bit, by little bit, I got this done, averaging about 1 ½ lines each time I sat down to write. To say the least, I am glad and proud that this is complete. However, there are some rough spots that I don't like. I would like constructive criticism on the whole poem, but on these lines in particular.
The line pair E and F: the second half of these line, while true, don't seem to fit into the rest of the poem very well.
The line P: "I don't know where to start"? Seems a bit false to me, I mean, I have started, right?
Thank you for reading this. Have a blessed day.- LittleDoe
