Nature, Let Us Learn From Thee

Nature, let us learn from thee;

   let us feel your wind and grace!

Nature, let us grow with thee;

   let us see your forgiving face!

Nature, let us shine with thee;

   let us sing in fields of barley!

Nature, let us win with thee,

   let us flee this enmity and parley!

 

  Your tranquil eyes know no haste

      with what we waste;

      our beauty effaced!

 

   Your sleepless heart knows no time

      with what we’ve signed;

      no aspiring chimes!

 

Nature, let us learn from thee;

   let us be our makers dream!

Nature, let us learn from thee;

   let us be your faithful stream ...
