SPIRITUAL POEMS: “Creation” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

“Creation”

The impulse of all love is to create.
God was so full of love, in His embrace
He clasped the empty nothingness of space,
And lo! the solar system! High in state
The mighty sun sat, so supreme and great
With this same essence, one smile of its face
Brought myriad forms of life forth; race on race
From insects up to men.
Through love, not hate,
All that is grand in nature or in art
Sprang into being. He who would build sublime
And lasting works, to stand the test of time
Must inspiration draw from his full heart.
And he who loveth widely, well and much,
The secret holds of the true master touch.

From Poems of Passion, by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
