David Wood (07 April 1950 / London)
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.
