God Said - Poem by emma hannon

God said to mother nature ''make the world beautiful'' and she did.
God said to fire ''make the earth warm'' and he did.
God said to wind '' blow away the sorrows of the world'' and she did.
God said to rain '' wash away the worries of the world'' and she did.
God said to earth '' make the world colourful'' and he did.
Then God turned to me and said'' Try to do your best in this world'' and i am.

    This is very imaginative. I esp. like the parallel structure, similar to the Hebrew poetry in the Bible. The use of anthropomorphism, though I usually don't care for it much, you make it work beautifully. From one so young this poem is very well done. Keep it up Emma. (Report) Reply

    wow.. what a beautiful writing style.. great work here..and especially love the way this poem expresses that though the supreme power is the almighty but whatever we are today and what we want to be solely depends upon our efforts.. and how hard we work to achieve it! ! !
    good going emma....
