Of Nature I Learn Something New - Poem by Francis Duggan

The years have left me ageing balding and gray
But of Nature i learn something new every day
Yes every day of her i learn something new
For to say this i am not one of a few
It is true of Nature she has ways of her own
And so much about her remains as unknown
Yet the more i learn of her the more i realize
That i know little of her this is not a surprise
Her Mother Earth is the one who does feed all
Every living creature from the great to the small
Us humans do depend on her for to live
Yet we take and take from her and in return to her little give
And of her i do learn something new every day
That we never stop learning it does seem this way.

    As a poet you you have a realisation of Mother Nature and her munifience. We owe all to our mother. Yet, so few know that.+++10
