Little Blue Ball (poem)


As I looked up at the stars last night I reflected for a moment on us all as passengers aboard our planet earth. I put this little poem together.

The little blue ball hurling through space
A ball all put together by means of God’s grace

As she goes on her way revolving around the sun
She travels at the same speed- never comes undone

365 ¼ days to complete a cycle - this is considered a year
As she travels through man’s - final frontier

All living creatures traveling without ever paying a fee
Being born to her nature we are handed a key

Mother earth with her oceans, prairies, jungles and forest
Keep all her living creatures - content and at rest

What a miracle it is to be a part of God’s creation
With him on board we find a mutual admiration

Little blue ball as you travel through time and space
Giving us all - as your passengers a time to embrace

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
