Israel - Poem by Solomon Crane

Once long ago was a group of slaves
Led to freedom by a man
Chosen by the Divine
Promised a new land
One that would stand
Til the wrath of the Divine
Brought it down

Before that day,
the land was great
Blessed and strong
They conquered all
Til they turned away
From their Lord

From this land came a king
Who knew the glory he would bring
However, he accreditted it to their God
And his God was quite pleased
One day he had a son
Wisest man in all the days

However, over time he turned away
To the gods of a foreign land
This incurred the wrath of God
And led to the destruction of the land
Before that day, they were great
Against any enemy, they would stand

    I laughed after reading the poem when I noticed that your first name is Solomon, the same as your subject King Solomon. I like the articulation, insight and penning of the piece. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
