Wonders of Nature !

Bird 2a

Sometimes I just,
Sit by myself.
Not doing anything but,
Just spending my time.

Gazing up at,
The sky and the clouds.
The birds flying by,
Even aeroplanes !

In the night,
The dark blue sky,
The bright yellow moon,
And the shinning stars !

The beauty of nature.
For us to,
Enjoy.

Bring peace,
To the mind,
And,
Joy to the heart.

Do you know,
How fortunate we are ?

As all these
Wonders are,
Blessings from above !

For us to enjoy,
To be happy
In our lives.

To bring peace,
And
Joy to the world !

~Deepa Nilamani ~

 

Trees !

tree-4

I think I shall never see,
A poem lovely as a tree,
A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed,
Against the earth’s, sweet flowering breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray.

A tree that may in Summer wear,
A nest of Robins in her hair.
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by people like me,
But only God can make a tree !

~Joyce Kilmer
