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 these and more combine to make

the very essence of its prose.
