A lyric acknowledging and glorifying the magnificence and majesty of Mother Nature as a primeval Force of existence...

Mother Nature's Grandeur

Mother Nature's spectacular, all know:
when spring comes with new life, year upon year,
rebirth and joy make the entire world grow;
all of earth in this Western hemisphere,
from east to west, start to vibrate and flow
with fulsome grandeur that even men fear.

So mortal men fear, and draw breath in awe
of, Nature's oldest majesty and source:
for from the earliest beginning, like law,
the seasons took their ordered, ancient course;
and with divine charge, like a lion's paw,
made awesomely felt their astonishing force!

So, if the miracles of Mother Nature
be so magnificent and grandiose,
let her then be mankind's all-wise teacher;
so she may instruct, enjoin, and enclose
men as stewards: and, to them, may feature
her fearsomely great powers in 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!
