Sonnet 59: When you consider nature all around

When you consider nature all around
You see the total perfection complete
Beauty in nature perfectly profound
In the eye of the beholder discrete.

What is obvious and to all distinct
Is that man tramples over this nature,
Causing animals to become extinct
Believing he has a higher stature.

But nature’s beauty must be protected
And wildlife habitats must be preserved,
Into men’s mind this must be injected
And the whole of nature must now be served.

To serve nature and not to be master
And protect nature for ever after.

    Saving Nature from all ravages of man should be our self undertaken task or Nature will wreak vengeance on us! Well put!

    The sum of the poem is:

    To serve nature and not to be master
    And protect nature for ever after.

    didn't wordsworth say? :
    ...i'd rather be
    a pagan suckled in a creed outworn...! ! !

    Protecting nature is the most important task for man. Man exploits nature. That must be stopped. Beautiful sonnet stresses this need. Thank you David.
