God's Greatest Work Of Art

God’s greatest work of art isn’t mankind It isn’t the food we eat at mealtime. It isn’t the leaves that fall from the tree, It isn’t the honey we get from a bee. It isn’t the stranger who became our friend, It isn’t the money we love to spend. It isn’t the green grass covering the ground It isn’t the snakes slithering around. God’s greatest work of art can be seen everyday It surrounds our world as we hurry on our way. It’s the majestic sunrise that greets each day It’s the sweet smell of fresh cut hay. It’s a child’s smile innocent and pure It’s a doctor’s intelligence developing a cure. It’s the song of rain dancing on the roof It’s the crunch of snow beneath a horse’s hoof. It’s the gift of love we share with each other It’s the miracle of life when you become a mother. It’s the enchanting sunset bringing on the night It’s the simple knowledge of what’s wrong and what’s right. It’s the strength and courage to face our fears It’s the gift of memories from our past years. It’s the millions of stars blanketing the sky It’s the flight of an eagle soaring up high. It’s the colorful rainbow after the storm It’s the way we come together when our lives are torn. God’s greatest work of art isn’t mankind It’s the birth of peace at Christmas time. It’s a special love two people share It’s a heavenly angel watching over us with care.

Deborah - Good morning - wonderful poem once again that just rolled on by everyone - Sometimes I just detest that conveyor belt that never stops - One thing tho hun this poems form should be "Couplet" instead of "Rhyme" - This is my most natural writing form - Your very talented ever thought about putting together a book - One thing I am compelled to tell everyone I meat about who and what I was so please go back and read my poem "Destruction Reconstruction" before our friendship grows anymore
