In Nature there's always something on which to write
Like dainty white butterflies in the sunlight
In the Town Park flitting from flower to flower
They age by three human years at the turn of each hour.
In Nature we learn something new every day
Though our Earth Mother to us of herself gives little away
Yet all of the secrets of flora and fauna and on how plants grow
Are things that human kind of never will know.
People are like the Seasons to life we come and we go
But the rivers of Nature to the sea ever flow
We are born in need of help and helpless we die
And in that way the Monarch and the President are no different to I.
Our true facts on Nature to say the least few
And on Nature every day we learn something new
The sound of bird song is a beautiful thing
But there's far more to the birds than the songs that they sing.
