Who am I ?

Who am I ?

A Poem by Tom
"

A nature themed poem

"
I am within without, here there and everywhere,
Unseen by naked eye, just as pure thin air
Blow cold north wind that heralds winter snow,
Then beckon at spring lambs, to leap up high and go.
Bring forth the summer sun in most resplendent ray
When green leaf slowly fades, remind swallow to fly away.
Will on the mighty bird to fly free on the wing
Uplift the souls of weary folk, when little children sing
Inspire the spawning salmon not to relent the fight,
Against the raging current, with journey's end in sight.
Returning to that brook, where was its place of birth,
To procreate the seed, then die in happy mirth.
Darwin spoke of theory to figure a solution,
How life formed singularly, the precede of evolution.
But I've been here from time immemorial, before all life began
The plants, the creatures and the ape, he said turned into man
No doubt he was a scholar of much vaunted pedigree,
Though at life's end was heard to say, 'I believe in thee!"
I spur on the ailing chick to break the hard, encasing shell,
Awaken sleeping bear, with spring's sweet, enticing smell
Paint the colour in the flowers that captivate the bee
Aid the tiny acorn to grow into a massive tree.
Which in turn provides a haven and sanctuary,
to many wondrous creatures, that dwell within its canopy.
I encourage new born baby, to cry aloud with zest
As mother draws up lovingly, to nurture from her breast.
With bowler and the batsman, opposed in sporting rivalry
Who later sit together and enjoy each other's camaraderie
I march with gallant soldier, to answer his country's call
And serenely he shall walk with me, if in battle he should fall.
Many acclaim me as the Creator, or other names of merit,
Though people often refer to me, as Mother Nature's eternal Spirit !

Tom
A much older write from the past which I reckoned needed airbrushed and put back on display once more?

In "reviving" this poetic conundrum you have also emphasised the value of your message in recognising what is worth keeping and not destroying.
A lesson that , sadly, is so often lost in the name of "progress".

No no, just can't think of anything at present!
yes, Mother Nature's son...doo doo doo doo doo...(Beatles)

i love how this presents an allegory so well....the double meanings so deftly carried through...nature and life itself, the parallels...

wonderfully written, Tom.

Very well thought out, can,t say I agree so far as evolution is concerned but that is just a matter of opinion. Great write nonetheless

what a pleasant walk along the trails of seasons, nature, spirit and God .. i very much enjoyed the result of an, obviously, dedicated writing process .. no trite rhymes, no sacrifice of syntax ..just a fine meditative read that lifts my heart to God this morning :) Darwin's theory on the origins of the species was pretty crude compared to science of today ..but i am one who can see no evidence .. no "missing links" to substantiate Evolutionist claims .. .. all the sciences have to leave off where God takes over ;) well written poem... worth reading to be sure.
