The Best Poem Of Simple Simon

A01 Holy Bible (Genesis) - The Story Of Creation

1. The Chaos

What we see now in the cosmos,
Once upon a time it was in chaos.
At the command of the God then,
A holy order came to settle down.

The earth was then formless.
The ocean left in total darkness,
It covered everything in rage,
In the beginning of that age.

2. The First Day's command

God said, 'Let there be light.'
At once, there came light.
'Let darkness free the light.'
Thus came the day and night.

The evening passed quietly.
The morning came slowly.
The Lord's first day's wish,
Came true with no blemish.

3. The Second Day's command

God said, 'Let there be a dome.'
The Firmament had come.
All water took one place,
By Lord's merciful grace.

The evening passed quietly.
The morning came slowly.
The Lord's second day's wish,
Came true with no blemish

4. The Third Day's Command.

God said, 'By my command,
Arise there holy land.'
Under the sky came the Earth,
The sea-side took its birth.

'Let Earth produce all plants,
Those that bear grains and fruits, '
Thus came the plant kingdom,
With God's foresight- wisdom.

The evening passed quietly.
The morning came slowly.
The Lord's third day's wish,
Came true with no blemish.

5. The Fourth Day's Command

God said, 'Let Light light the sky,
Separate night from day.
Let day be ruled by Sun-light,
And Moon rule o'er the night.'

'Let light begin to show
The time, days, years to know;
And all the holy festivals
When each one truly falls? '

The earth received Sunshine.
And moonlight blessed it fine;
The Lord's fourth day's wish,
Came true with no blemish.

6. The Fifth Day's Command

God said, 'Let the water be filled
With living things, all kinds,
And air with many birds'
They came to be by His words.

Let creatures give offspring,
And so too all earthlings!
Thus the Lord's fifth day's wish,
Came true with no blemish.

7. The Sixth Day Command

God said, 'Let there appear,
Wild beasts and pets we rear, '
Thus came animals all,
Pets and wild, big and small.

God did not rest with that.
Adam and Eve, He made.
'Let them arise, ' He said,
'They resembled Lord God.'

'They'll have the power,
To rule o'er fish in water,
Besides birds of the air,
And beasts on land wherever.'

'Let there be male, female;
Their progeny to control
All lesser beings found,
On planet earth all round.'

'The grains and fruits are meant
For men, women to eat,
And grass and leafy plants,
For birds, animals, ants.'

Happy with what He made,
God gave all, food and shade;
Thus the Lord's sixth day's wish,
Came true with no blemish.

8. The Seventh Day's Command

Thus Universe began,
To function; so did man
When the seventh day came,
To glorify God's name

Glad to get this opportunity to read the work of someone who has mastered the art of writing beautifully. His rich experience over the years is reflected in his work and he has a magical way of saying things that even a small child will find easy to understand. I read a few pages to my little Vikram everyday who simply loves to hear and waits for the next day to hear more. Beautiful language, expressions and marvellous coining of rhyming phrases Hoping to read more and more. Respectful regards, Sarda Mohan
