 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Do you not know? Do you not hear?
What was told to you from the start?
Have you not the need to revere,
Of the foundations of the heart.
For it is He who sits above,
Inhabitants like grasshoppers;
Sending to the earth of His love,
Blessings nourished with their choppers.
He stretched Heaven as a curtain,
Spreading like a tent to dwell in;
Knowing everything is certain,
To those who have good discipline.
The Lord brings princes to nothing,
Emptiness to rulers on earth;
Judging vanity what may bring,
That causes value drop its worth.
Scarcely as planted, scarcely sown,
Scarcely of stem has taken root;
Scarcely after the wind has blown,
They wither and die bears no fruit.
To whom will you ever compare,
That I could be equal as Him;
For as the Holy One does care,
Having joy and not feeling grim.
So lift up your eyes high to see,
Take a look who created these;
He brings out to host His decree,
Pleasure of who bow to their knees.
He is calling us all by name,
By the greatness upon His might;
His strong power as you proclaim,
As you are walking in His light.
