Nature Never Disappointing


As I stand on the lawn,

The croquet ball in front of me,

I hit it towards the hoop,

Not a good shot

But it happens sometimes.

I just stand there waiting,

Waiting for my friend

To hit his ball.

I look up and look around,

I see the beauty of Spring,

It glows all around me

In the afternoon sun.

The trees so green

As their leaves shine so wonderfully.

Flowers of white and yellow

Shine on the bushes

And there on the green fields,

The green fields that surround me

I see the glory of life

As the birds wander over the fields.

The jackdaws and woodpigeons

Intermingling in peace,

Searching for food and nesting.

A pheasant comes towards me

Its startling colours shining,

Shining in the sunshine.

I look up and an occasional cloud floats by,

Floats by gently, its white beauty so glorious.

I return my thoughts to the game

But realising that the game is not important

As the beauty and wonder of Nature

Never disappoints me.
