I Called Life

From the womb
Of a world made new
I called Life

I called
Those with four feet
And those with two

I called
That which slithers
And that which crawls

I called
One to swim
And one to fly

I called
Both the big
And the small

I called trees
Growing tall
Rooted deep

I called molds
Lasting a day
Seeming so small

Out of My Joy
I called Life
To share with Me
