Did You?

The leaves on the tree outside my window
Are crying for joy on the grass below.
The grass catches their tears with arms outstretched,
Celebrating life and just how far-fetched
It is when you imagine: tears for joy
When a child is born, whether girl or boy;
Breathless wonder at the sun’s light rising,
Dying on the lap of the horizon:
Nature’s magnificent Pieta,
Multi-colored in life and variety.
And that’s just man, the trees, grass, rain, and sun.
What of the rest God’s created and done?
Why don’t we give credit, where it’s due?
I didn’t create all of this. Did you?
