THE TAPESTRY OF NATURE




TAPESTRY OF NATURE

How beautiful the tapestry 
Of rich brown earth and soil,
Leaves on trees and shelter given
Memories to recall.

The silver grey of winter skies,
The fading pinks of morning,
Blue patches in a leaden sky
And storms without a warning.

The golden waves of fields of grain
And birds upon the  wing,
Cattle grazing peacefully
All these such joy can bring.

The ice-cold chill of winter wind
The warmth of summer’s glow,
Bulbs in springtime – an autumn storm
These things I am sure you know.

So value the tapestry of life
Enjoy each and every minute
Be sure you look and really see
How you have your place in it.

That is stunning, the colours, contrasts and reflections in the picture and the words.
