A Nature poem -

Of Priceless Worth

by Dorothy Farrell

Is any other season quite like spring?
With daffodils in bloom and birds that sing
When March hares all begin to leap and run
now Nature's glorious season has begun

To walk along an English country lane
and smell sweet hawthorn blossom after rain
A heady scent that's carried on the breeze
that stirs the leafy canopy of trees

Red campion and cow parsley ramble free
along the verge of lanes, a sight to see
when waving in the wind as we walk by
A scene that is so pleasing to the eye

The cowslip, bluebell and the meadowsweet
With woodland violets nodding at our feet
All spread their colour palette on the earth
Breath-taking beauty and of priceless worth

To idly rest upon a fence and gaze
On verdant fields where sheep may safely graze
A quiet spot to spend some time I find
And such a peaceful way to calm the mind

How happy, Oh how fortunate am I
To see the beauty of an evening sky
When sun, in purple haze, begins to lean
On meadows newly clothed, all fresh and green

Forever changing is the countryside
Where in their turn plants flourish side by side
They find again their true place in the sun
In Springtime, where new growth has now begun
