I Have Always Loved You Truly
I have always loved you truly Mother Nature
But about you I have much to learn and know
I see your changing beauty in the Seasons
And I feel your anger when your wild gales blow.
I see your calm in the quiet pool of the river
In it's gravelly bed is mirrored the blue sky
Where in the quiet of the Summer evening
The brown trout jump to catch the dragon fly.
I marvel at the beauty of your singing
When on bush and tree your feathered minstrels sing
Your woods and groves are green and bland and leafy
And you look marvellous in your green of Spring.
I love the beauty of your snow capped mountains
On your frozen ponds and lakes the children skate
And in the bleakness of your Winter valley
The barking dog fox searching for a mate.
I love the richness of your Autumn colours
The mature trees in the Parkland of the town
Resplendent in their hues of natural beauty
The yellow and the orange and the brown.
Above your lush green meadows of the Summer
The dark winged swallows flying to and fro
And from flower to flower the butterflies are flitting
And thrushes pipe on the leafy hedgerow.
I adore you now as always Mother Nature
Though about you I have much to learn and know
And I marvel at your wonders and your beauty
And my love for you it only grow and grow.
