God's Creation

Upon all the winding roads we travel
In our walk upon this earth
We must pause awhile to marvel
Amidst our constant life-long search
At this wonderful creation
That God has crafted here below
Raise our voice in celebration
Our appreciation we must show

Must thank God for the little things
And for the grand things too
For the beauty every season brings
The growth of things brand new
For all the wonders that around us lurk
We must humbly bow down low
As we gaze upon such skillfully sculpted work
Up to God our praise must flow

I write a lot for my students to get them to write back. Here in Quebec, in French schools literature seems to get forgotten especially at primary and secondary levels...well who has time between all those French rules you have to teach! So in the ESL classroom, I try and introduce as much literature as I can. I try to get students to enjoy it. Then, I show them how it helps them to see the gray and a way past the end of their noses. A word by itself is a wonderful thing, as worthy to the fiddle one string but adorned with a sentence a word blossoms in sense inviting young hearts to sing...
