Surroundings - Poem by Bonnie Shipman

Nature is a place
and not a person
Nature is the world
of the creation

Where life happens
without any help at all
Where rain and leaves
mean summer's gone; it's fall

The touch of wind,
taste of summer air
Sound of waterfalls
Sights and smells to share

Nature is a presence
around the patient one
Who waits to discover
Nature's secrets come undone

    Nature is a presence
    around the patient one
    Who waits to discover
    Nature's secrets come undone
    be with nature and to love
