The Genius Of Nature Poem by Matshona Dhliwayo

The Genius Of Nature

"If you try to sell rivers to oceans, they will mock you;
fish to seas, they will belittle you;
rocks to mountains, they will taunt you;
clouds to skies, they will deride you;
color to rainbows, they will revile you;
stars to galaxies, they will chide you;
wind to storms, they will denounce you;
sand to deserts, they will ridicule you;
speed to cheetahs, they will criticize you;
venom to serpents, they will disparage you;
beauty to stars, they will discredit you;
pearls to oysters, they will berate you;
trees to forests, they will spite you;
birds to skies, they will disdain you;
music to birds, they will dismiss you;
wool to sheep, they will detest you;
silk to spiders, they will defame you;
seasons to nature, they will despise you;
honey to bees, they will laugh at you;
perfume to flowers, they will chuckle at you;
fruit to trees, they will jeer at you;
rain to clouds, they will scoff at you;
fear to wolves, they will howl at you;
and terror to lions, they will roar at you."
