The Creation
Author: Joseph Ogbonna


Saviour Divine, in utter amazement we stare
at your Celestial and terrestrial works of art.
The Shrubs, the Trees,the Tares,the Flowers fair
all brilliantly arranged choreographically
for your amusement,entertainment and pleasure.
The names of all Beasts; wild and tamed you know by heart,
for in a global view you watch them at leisure.
The Earth's landscape and plains are geographically
fashioned by you, with Gardens and relief features.
Your boisterous Seas inhabit aquatic creatures
great and small, most pleasant and refreshing for meats.
At your thunderous command,from where your highness sits,
the rains, sleet ,hail, snow all water the entire Earth.
The Golden Sun, the Silver Moon, the Diamond Stars
each give their vivid expressions of your glory,
of your ingenuity do the Birds sing in mirth,
The Planets; Mercury, Neptune, Venus and Mars
line up with five others in reverent procession
for thy wonderful works made for Man's possession.
Oh what a magnificent creation story!

------- Author's Notes -------

The inspiration to compose this poem came from the eighteenth century German composer, Joseph Hayden,who composed the symphony "The creation". His symphony as well as this poem, are based on the Divine creation of the world which is being disputed by modern day skeptics. The poet like Haydn, is resolute in his belief that the entire Universe was created by God.
