Nature’s Moral Stories XII

Bare, bold, tall—

To trees,

Resiliency and profoundness

Do belong.

Silly! Fool! Petty!

Life is never about heights—oist!

Not trees, nor sky is the culprit.

Envy or pride? Toss a penny.

The sun, the water, the wind—

From these benefactors all rely,

Oh, teachers of wise!

Ever justified are the whys.

Spring, summer, fall,

And winter—

The whens are given,

Yet men are keen to defy.

Vigor, vitality, endurance—

To live and breathe,

They matter.

Beauty is but a passersby.

To survive is to thrive.
