I think this is a lovely poem which talks about how we can only do
beautiful things if we let Jesus take control :) I loved it !

Thoreau was moved by life and the creation around him and expressed his
feelings in words of his poem. Many men and women have done so in past and
are doing so in present by word, music, painting, teaching and in living!
However, only about 40 men in history have been 'moved' by God in producing
what is today called Holy Bible! This book undoubtedly moved Thoreau in
thinking about life and trying to understand it's meaning. However, nobody
can define what life is! There is only one word that can start to do so and
the word is miracle! Miracle is defined as something wonderful not fully
understood. As Thoreau was moved by life and it's creations, so we can be
moved by reading his poems and be directed to the greatest inspirator in
