Sonnet: God Gave All Things Functions - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Iron in Air unused can only rust;
It should be beaten into useful things;
All books unread will gather only dust;
The ring-fingers are meant for wedding-rings!

A mirror loses silvering with time;
One’s face reflects the feelings of the mind;
One’s activities depend on the clime;
The jaws must move well in order to grind.

All things must be to optimum use put;
All things must be taken care of rightly;
The hand cannot do things, done by the foot;
The care of soul shouldn’t be taken lightly.

All things God gave have functions numerous;
Let’s thank the Lord for being generous.
