To Nature

by Ben Pickard   Oct 15, 2018


My muses are the furrowed fields -
The waterfalls and mountaintops;
The stars and all that nature yields:
The meadows and the golden crops.

The blackbird chants and thus becomes
My heart's delight; my morning sun.

And sunlight through a raindrop brings
Such wealth of hue which paints the clouds:
A rainbow borne on angels' wings
Which lights the black and lifts the crowds.

Upon the banks and by the streams,
I fill my time with scenic dreams.

The Summer's green, the Autumn leaves -
The frosty flakes and buds of Spring -
Are portraits of what nature weaves
And emblems of the gifts she brings.

I am the beach, I am the sea,
And all of Her is all of me.
