Of Nature We Are Poem by Francis Duggan

Of Nature We Are



It is a fact of life and fact never lie
We are born of a woman eventually to die
Like all other life forms for us there's an end
We are only mere mortals why otherwise pretend
Like the insect, fish or amphibian the fly, trout or frog
Like the humble earth worm the bird or the dog
Whether we are buried entire or to ashes we do burn
Of Nature we are and to her we will return
Like the food that we eat on us a use by date
The monarch and the president the masses may celebrate
But they too mere mortals that and nothing more
Though of the social rank in life they are to the fore
We return to Nature when the life from us has gone
And she the immortal forever lives on.
