The Glory of the man



















The glory of the grass is in dancing with the wind
The glory of the man in thinking big
The glory of the dog is in wagging his tail
Glory of the man in self-respect
Glory of a river is in flowing steadily
Glory of the man in standing firm
Glory of a tree is in giving fruits
Glory of the man in giving love
Glory of a sun is in shining bright
Glory of the man in finding light
Glory of God is in his creation
Glory of the man in his compassion
Glory of an ocean in staying calm
Glory of the man in his dynamism
Glory of birds is in chirping loud
Glory of the man in his sweet words

Lovely poem. Did you write it?

It is so cool that you are in Russia. I would love to see Russia. I think if someone gave me a blank plane ticket and I could write my own destination on it, it would be Moscow. I think it would be so interesting to go to Russia.

What do you do there? What is your life like?

hmmmm..I think the glory of man is 'to behave manly' and do all the things with a "humane touch"!!

I find this verse quite uplifting. It is a nice change to find optimism in poetry.

Hi Rachana,
I agree with you that glory of man is in behaving humanely...

Life in Moscow is good...rather great because my mother is here now and i am getting busier with every passing day.
