A forest’s wondrous majesty stands tall.

Its verdant canopy embraces a magical space

Filled with rich and earthy perfume, and winds that call

And whisper their secrets of life and beauty and grace.

The brilliantly adapted life that thrives

In desert’s wide expanse of sun-bleached ground

Is deep inspiration that inevitably revives

One’s sense of awe for life so gently found.

The never-ending melody of waves

Embracing, and retreating from the shore

Are Ocean’s healing melody that saves

And inspires, and returns, forevermore.

And every form of life this sweet Earth holds,

Exquisite, sentient, brilliant and diverse,

Is blessed treasure whose appreciation unfolds

Sheer joy and grace, so endlessly disbursed.
