Chapter 8 of the book Shepherd
Terza Rima
"To Lie Down in Green Pastures" by w.j.debi

To lie down in green pastures one day
And gaze over lush forests and glens,
Watching young leopards and kid goats at play

With small calves and great lions, their friends.
Woolly lambs and wolf cubs frolic outside
Then they snuggle to sleep in wolf dens.

The cow and the bear in peace shall reside,
Feeding together on a banquet of straw.
A child will lead them to safely abide

As companions in a world filled with awe.
When paradise comes and earth is reborn,
Changing both our hearts and natural law,

Love will then reign, as prophets have sworn,
Bringing a beautiful heavenly morn.

Author Notes
"The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
"And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox,.
"And the suckling child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice den.
"They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea."
Isaiah 11:6-9

"He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.."
Psalm 23:2
