Which thought determined
I should be
not fragrant air,
nor rose to see.
Nor evening song
nor shadow long
nor cooling cloudy canopy.
What difference lies
in bird that flies,
a flowers seed,
and I who bleed?
Of any endless creation of things,
what I am, what thought did bring?
Not soulless sparkling
drop of rain
but soul and spirit
and body and pain.
Comfort me, comfort me.
Let me know
that last I'll see
somehow, somehow,
we all belong,
I as well
as breeze and song.
As tear on cheek,
as leaf on tree,
the thought that brought
that I am me.

(I had this on another site a few years back under robnjop, bit I never put it on here.)

All Creatures Great and Small!
Loved this Robert...we are ALL one under our creator....Nature as well as Man. As Man...we tend to believe we are supreme beings, master of all other creatures. But nature...i.e.., Animals, weather etc., has it's own place in the universe and can be as much or even more powerful in it's own right.

We are here, subject to the whims of God our creator...equal under his less. Good write!
