Nature's Supermarket



Nature's horn of plenty can trump utopias.
Shop at God's supermarket with cornucopias.

One shelf is an orchard with vast array of fruit.
The range from grapes to apples can each appetite suit.

One shelf is the ocean with the freshest seafood.
The scallop, bass and sturgeon can nourish health for good.

One shelf is fertile soil with vegetables and grain.
The greens, wheat and potatoes can nutriments contain.

One shelf is for flocks and herds with protein multiply.
The eggs, quail and antelope can muscle mass supply.

One shelf is a country lane with wildflower bouquets.
The fragrances and colors can the senses amaze.

God has a supermarket with grand abundancy.
Every shelf is fully stocked with products that are free.
