Michael William Reid

Just thoughts

The winds of spring they dance and sing

And frolic through the trees  

And look silently in contemplation 

Of the young man that they see


He walks through life in wonderment 

Amazed at the unknown 

The silent loudness of the beauty 

That nature calls its home


But in the forest the thunder will crash

And the lightning strike you down

In the forest the darkness may loom

And you feel like you may drown 


But if you fight and persevere 

You'll see the other end

The beauteous light of nature's love 

And all the strength it has to send


So never stop moving 

No step taken back

Because life will hit you hard

But it will not take you off track

    Melodious and brings the mind to a reverie. A very lifting message too. Thanks for sharing.
