The School Of Nature

To be a poet
it is essential to be a student
of school of nature
to complete this study
one life is not sufficient
but has to take many births
its language and grammars are too tough
no university can meet it up
in the school of nature
the languages of stars, planets & all creatures
are taught for which you have to choose a teacher
God is the super teacher to teach you
in the school of nature.

    The theme and all the features,
    In ' The School of Nature'
    Are right and appropriate
    I very much appreciate.
    'To be a poet
    ....is... to be a student
    of school of nature'
    Is, in fact, the true picture.
    Thank you a lot

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
