Sonnet 18

These are the days and times of ending years
Where man has made his move away from God
Walking in darkness he no longer hears
The cherubim that sing heavens ballade
In darkness he delights himself to dream
Of wars that wash the earth with blood, thus such
Foul actions grow while deaf to natures scream
Destroying earth and all made of pure touch
Les man should fold his ego that's unfurled
To obey laws above a higher crown
Soon days will come when raindrops fill the world
And death will float and all alive will drown
Thou giveth man each herb and bearing seed
And over land dost man over herb bleed
