All Creatures
By M. Linda Steffey
An Animal Rights Poem from All-Creatures.org

All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.

All Creatures
By M. Linda Steffey

I love all Creatures living, Lord...
The smallest of Thy beast
The great Animals...the powerful
And those called "Thy least"...

They are of Thy Divinity
Pure Energy and Love,
They are Thy gift to all of Earth
Sent down from high above..

The great Birds who soar the Skies
The Fish that swim the Seas
The Animals that walk the Earth
The Butterflies and Bees...

All Life is connected and related
To another..
To each we are a precious gift
A Sister or a Brother...

Whether furred or feathered
Or of Mankind's family
All is connected, precious
In Life's great, family Tree......
