A lyric on the grand and eternal processes of Nature...


Nature's Grandeur

Mother Nature's magnificent, all know:
when spring imbues new life, year after year,
rays of gold feed the land, and the plants grow
so that all of earth in this hemisphere,
from east to west, again vibrate and flow
with verdant grandeur that mortal men fear.

As earliest men draw their breath in awe
of Nature's ancient majesty and source,
from the beginning of time, as by law,
the seasons take their predetermined course;
and, as relentless as an iron paw,
renew earth with timeless, eternal force!

So, if the workings of Mother Nature
be so magnificent and grandiose,
let her then be man's benevolent teacher
so she may instruct, enjoin, and enclose
them as stewards: and may also feature
to them her fearful powers in cool repose.

Having lived in the heart of the city (concrete jungle) for 5 years now, this brings back a sense of what is out there, outside of our
urban mega-bubbles. Somehow the urbane life is such a delusional existence!
