Nature’s Pen

                                                          NATURE’S PEN

Nature has written a worthy essay

on the barren face of the soil.

Put hope in the hearts,

and smiles on the lips

of those who sweat and toil.

Verdant exclamation marks,

paragraphs of green –

the sky a beauteous back-cloth

on which the words can lean.

Clustered scented flowers,

the wonder of a rose,

all this and more combine to make

the very essence of its prose.
