To The Rescue

poem by: Cecilia Crasto
Written on Oct 28, 2016

A twinkling star fell from high
It landed on a muddy track
It looked so pretty in the sky
I picked it up and sent it back.

I watched a spider weave and spin
A delicate web for an innocent prey
It's only purpose to draw within
The little fly I shooed away.

A baby bird playfully falls from the tree
A cat spots it's prey and quickens his pace
I rescue the bird and set it free
The cat is defeated and gives up the chase.

A butterfly struggles in a young boy's grip
It's wings about to be ripped away
I tap the boy's hand and he lets it slip
The butterfly lives for another day.

To all His creatures God gave a name
We must cherish them with tender love
It's in our power the lion to tame
He too was made by the Lord above.
