Second Part – The Great Deluge


For 120 years Noah pled with the people, but they listened not!

. . . As the people looked upon this scene with laughter ~ A silly old grey headed man whom they called ~ noticed not he just kept on building his ark!

The gates of peaceful waters unhinged

Torrents and floods broke through

The leviathan once forging the deep

Was tossed about as the humped back

Whale became distraught

A great ship bearing eight people

And animals two of a kind sped

Over trembling waters

And when Noah, his wife, three sons

And their wives lay down to sleep

Their boat shook and shuddered

The planks muttered with labor pains

About to give birth to a new world

Of the old none would remain

Losing track of days and nights

Of darkness only from

Visiting angels wafting their wings

Could they see with heavenly light

Claps of thunder roaring

Holding on with each other

For dear life

But God had said forty days

And nights then you shall emerge

Replenishing the earth

And they remembered His

Promise no sea nor

Pain of this global event

Could prevent this ship

For it bore the progenitor

Of man and beast

Even though the waves increased

And when God looked down with a

Frown on His face

And saw the devastation

He had to take

Never again would he destroy with waters

What he had made

He blew upon the deep as the boat

Slowly floated to Mt Ararat

. . . And it takes a lot of faith to

Believe all that!
