The Book Of Nature
Every creation on and beyond the Globe, where we stay
Has been given eloquence and the power to portray.
The smiling, fragrant flowers, the buzzing bees,
The chirping birds and the shady trees;
The gleaming moon, the effulgent sun,
The silent, rocky cliffs and the roaring ocean;
The bubbling stream, the rolling pebbles,
The distant horizon and the star that twinkles;
The whispering wind, the surging river water,
The verdant vales and the grassy pasture ….
All of them have something to convey,
But to comprehend what they say,
Listening is not the only required skill –
One must be able to See and Feel.
From the moment Time was born
And till it vanishes into the Unknown,
The works of the greatest of Authors
Have been and will go on and on.
So, instead of burying yourself in this paper,
Go out and try to read the Book of Nature.
