Treasure Island

Michael P. Johnson

(7th Nov.1943 / New Silksworth / Sunderland Co/Durham England)


“There is no God” a fool will say
“So who can judge when people stray
The BANG created all we see
Nothing was made by God’s decree”

But truth will always come to light
At wisdom’s dawn there’s spiritual sight
Yet fools are blind to Jesus’ hand
Deaf to that which God has planned

“Let there be light” God’s voice was heard
The Spirit acted out the word
“Let there be land, let there be sky”
Again the Father spoke on high

God formed the earth He parted seas
Established fish, fruit bearing plants
The sun the moon Pluto and mars
Heaven He filled with jewel like stars

Creatures God made to swim and fly
The birds the beasts, clouds in the sky
The ant the whale, microbe and flea
Nothing evolved, or happened to be

In God’s likeness Adam was made
Never to die never to fade
To walk and live without a care
Jesus planned how man should fare

Yet something failed from Adam’s life
So from man’s rib God made his wife
To these God gave both great and small
Till disobedience brought their fall

Now broken was their Father’s law
With guilt they bore the devil’s spore
“Leave my presence” once more The Voice
“The devil or I” God gives the choice? ? ?

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
