God Is Everywhere

A poem using a flower as an analogy the poet is expressing the thought that God is everywhere. Mary C. Ryan does a good job driving home the point that God is all around us all the time, and, that we all have a purpose. No matter where we are we should be content and help others where ever we are!



God Is Everywhere
by Mary C. Ryan


One gloomy day,
A man did stray
Through fields and woodlands drear;
And chanced to see
On the green lea,
A flower sweet and fair.
It was the violet so blue.
That he saw hiding there.

"Why thus," he said,
"Thy fragrance shed
O'er this secluded spot?
Oh! why not grow,
Thy beauty show,
And seek a brighter lot?
For thou would'st win some lover true
In palace or a cot."

It hung its head.
And thus replied: —
"My God has placed me here,
And I'm content
My life be spent
This lonely spot to cheer;
To some faint heart, e'en I may show
That God is everywhere.

"And I alone,
In modest tone,
Far from the haunts of man,
A soul may win,
From loathsome sin,
Back to its God again.
For o'er me here, His zephyrs blow,
His care for me is seen."

The man passed by.
And heaved a sigh;
But left the violet there.
"Long live," he said.
"Thy fragrance shed,
For God is also here.
To my sad heart, well didst thou tell
That He is everywhere.

"For there's no place,
Where there's no trace,
Of His great love and care;
Where'er I be,
His love I see;
For He is ever near.
Where space extends. His praises swell,
For God is everywhere."
