Dedicated to Annie @ What the Woman Wrote
Have you heard a tune more melodious than
the crickets’ song or the clear drops of rain
beating down on summer’s lush canopy?
Have you seen anything more picturesque
than the flocks of winter birds migrating,
relentless in search of their last year’s home?
Have you found a scent sweeter than the smell
of wet grass at dawn beneath your bare feet,
soft as velvet and soaked in autumn’s dew?
Have you ever been as warmed by a touch
as the rising sun warms a hazy morn
of an ideal year’s first or final days?
Thus, no one can be more fulfilling or complete
than Nature for the senses that can savor it!
