A Scene in Nature

by Dolly'sPoems

My eye has played the painter and interpreted in words
the image of the trees, the birds and flowers I've observed;
and sounds recorded on the page of songs with a tuneful ease,
as nature procreates with love, I hear it in the breeze.

A cheery robin bobs about, a blackbird flicks his tail,
a beetle shifts a mound with clout, slow moving is the snail.
A bee is keen to kiss a flower-- welcoming the sun,
as squirrels, rabbits, mice and beavers, try to have some fun.

The squeals of children in the park, on frames and slides and swings,
and ducks dive down, their bums stick up, the water never clings.
As dogs run free to roll about, disguising scent in soil,
the gardeners plant blooms again, back breaking is their toil.

A place where there's so much to see, the park is full of life,
in summer mortal life enjoys extended days of light.
I never miss a single moment, eyes record it all--
the great outdoors where life goes on, for creatures great and small.


This is a photograph I took in May this year at Beacon Park, Lichfield, Staffordshire, Englands.
