Sonnet: Avoid Undue Risks To Life


Our life on earth is loveliest God’s gift;
He gave it freely out of love divine;
God abhors sin that causes great a rift,
Between the seed in fruit and trunk of Vine.

God watches every creature with much care;
He has great plans for everyone He made;
The curious mind and heart of man does dare
To take undue risks from which life could fade.

Man’s life God gave is priceless wealth on earth;
He should not put his life at risk with ease;
God has a special purpose for each birth;
Man’s end is brought by accidents, disease.

Life ebbs with age which no one can prevent;
Preserve your precious life by wisdom lent.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
