Shhhh! Wildlife!

By Steve Wardrip

Silence is your best friend.
A quiet moccasin.

The smell from a distant fog,
Croak! A frog on a log.

Ear to the ground, my friend,
May you hear now again.

Earthworms crawl silently,
On high, the birds can see.

Compliments of nature,
This is what we wait for.

She holds more than we know,
Can’t reveal the whole show!

Like a mother’s baby womb,
Can’t tell it all too soon.

Mother Nature is seasons,
Our season will reason.
