Baptized A Christian - Poem by Francis Duggan

I was baptized a Christian though it may seem a bit odd
That I no longer believe on a Heavenly God
My God's name is Nature and Nature is a she
The only immortal and she will do me
Your right to your religious beliefs none ought to deny
But I do not believe in your God in the sky
To an unseen and unknown God I'm not one who could pray
The Goddess I believe in I see every day
Her amazing beauty one does not pay to see
Like the clusters of flowers blooming on the wattle tree
In the depths of Winter the colour of gold
A thing of great beauty for all to behold
Such beauty that Nature can only create
For writers and artists for to celebrate.
