Simply Denied To Die

The royally striped lion although uncouthly imprisoned behind the bars of cage; simply denied to eat green chunks of grass,

The flamboyantly sizzling Sun although deceitfully imprisoned behind the clouds; simply denied to relinquish its dazzling rays of light,

The grandiloquently colossal ship although ruthlessly imprisoned on land; simply denied to walk,

The lethally slithering scorpion although pathetically imprisoned in a jar of water; simply denied to permeate its tail and sting,

The fabulously scented rose although gruesomely imprisoned amidst a heap of fetidly stinking garbage; simply denied to emancipate its wonderful fragrance,

The true soldier although surreptitiously imprisoned in the enemy territory; simply denied to divulge the secrets of his Motherland,

The brilliantly scintillating pearl although ominously imprisoned in a blanket of perpetual darkness; simply denied to abdicate its enchanting glimmer,

The sacrosanct mother although murderously imprisoned in the land of the devil; simply denied to feed her child satanic blood,

The boisterously vivacious bird although diabolically imprisoned behind walls of ghoulish ice; simply denied to lie on its back and sleep,

The audaciously crawling crocodile although forcefully imprisoned in a cave replete with pure vegetables; simply denied to open its armory of knife like jaws,

The overwhelmingly towering mountain although savagely imprisoned in the red ant's mole; simply denied to detach its oligarchic crown summit,

The immortally laughing clown although mercilessly imprisoned in the realms of the morbid graveyard; simply denied to shrug off his heavenly smile,

The ardently throbbing heart although barbarically imprisoned in the domains of the conventionally wretched society; simply denied to slacken the intensity of its passionately palpitating beats,

The gargantuan stomach although treacherously imprisoned in the fathomless deserts; simply denied to devour the appetizingly silver sands,

The insurmountably determined eyes although miserably imprisoned amidst an island of blood and horrendous impediments; simply denied to ooze even
a droplet of tear,

The irrefutably saintly body although inevitably imprisoned under the coffin; simply denied to embrace even the tiniest of evil,

The religion of humanity although perilously imprisoned amidst spurious norms of the world outside; simply denied to sell its omnipotent dignity,

The invincible arrow of truth although disastrously imprisoned in an ocean of insatiable lechery; simply denied to drift towards the luxurious cream of blatant
lies,

The astronomically resilient beams of courage although imprisoned behind black walls of despair; simply denied to succumb to the hopeless sorrow,

And the uninhibitedly divine virtue of love although cruelly imprisoned infinite feet beneath the barriers of baseless civilization; simply denied to fade away;
simply denied to die.

Oops! I entered this on the wrong poem. I meant it to be posted on the page for If Once You Have Slept On An Island, another of Rachel Field's poems. Please forgive the error.
I learned this poem when I was in 5th grade, and it stuck with me. It was one of my late husband's favorite poems. We often vacationed on Topsail Island, a barrier island just of the NC coast. This was where he requested his ashed to be scattered after his death. Needless to say, we complied with his request.
Yes time to fly even when the leaves are still green. Very vivid and truly engaging poem -loved the arrangement and the last words that rhymed well in each stanza. Excellent! 10++++++
