Nature’s Philosophy (Novelinee) - Poem by Gert Strydom

(after Percy Bysshe Shelley)

No things in nature acts only single
as all things are set to love each other;
why can we not also such like mingle
to be more than like sister and brother?
In a loving, caring kind of emotion,
embracing the wind touches the flowers
and to each other there is devotion,
the sun shines with its secret powers
while the earth is kissed by rain showers.

[Reference: “Love’s philosophy” by Percy Bysshe Shelley.]
