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.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
