Great, Wide, Beautiful, Wonderful World - Poem by William Brighty Rands

Great, wide, beautiful, wonderful World,
With the wonderful water round you curled,
And the wonderful grass upon your breast--
World, you are beautifully drest.

The wonderful air is over me,
And the wonderful wind is shaking the tree,
It walks on the water, and whirls the mills,
And talks to itself on the tops of the hills.

You friendly Earth! how far do you go,
With the wheat-fields that nod and the rivers that flow,
With cities and gardens, and cliffs, and isles,
And people upon you for thousands of miles?

Ah, you are so great, and I am so small,
I tremble to think of you, World, at all;
And yet, when I said my prayers to-day,
A whisper inside me seemed to say,
"You are more than the Earth, though you are such a dot:
You can love and think, and the Earth cannot!"

    My grandmother was born in 1914 and she recited this poem on stage in the 3rd grade. She taught it to me in 1966 because it was her favorite poem. I've taught it to my son's (now grown) and today I found that very same 'Third grade Reader' (my grandmother's) and read the poem to my step-daughter. After reading the poem to the 9 year old - she finally realized that God loves her and the message of Jesus. The understanding from the poem awoke her like a beacon of light and she got it - we are more important than the world though we are such a dot - we can love and think, and the Earth cannot!
