Gracious Nature

Gracious nature never greets
 With a lifeless saying
Rather, kisses on the cheek
 By wind sent softly sailing

When I step into her house
 A cushion’s there for my feet
When I need a place to rest
 She’s given this fallen tree

Never does she anger
 When an osprey does receive
Pleasure through its wings
 By the currents of her breeze

The grass utters no foul word
 When it’s bumped from behind
Instead, they share a melody
 Of their many whispers combined

Now the sun completes its course
 As will I, O gracious nature
I’m thankful for your many gifts
 A reflection of our Maker
