Of Earths

140

O’ life the sun exceeds a billion Suns
To light up the starry space
I can count countless constellations
A tyranny of life, in a grain of sand

A Universe this long & complete
A trillion voices of Life’s mystery
The sameness of a million worlds may be
The destiny of the ascended species

O’ life, enough of war and petty pursuits
Such magnitudes as this oppresses my mind
That delight in knowledge never finds
A limit to the limitless cooperation

Of as many Gods counted as extinctions
Our earth a blessed green-round carnivore
Solved in golden rain and proud expansion’s mirth.

      • Let me encourage you in that! Actually, the young lady in the photo looks quite lovely…now that I have studied the photo two or three hundred times!
        And the poem remains one of my favorites coming from your heart and mind.
        You have the soul of a true poet; I look forward to your next poem.
