A Kyrielle for the young - and young at heart

Sharing the Planet

by June Sargent

Just look around and you will see
abundant proof that earth could be
the paradise for which you yearn.
From nature's harmony let's learn.

Serenity from dawn til night
surrounds the lake as birds take flight
to soar 'bove clouds without concern.
From nature's harmony let's learn.

Beneath the lotus koi fish play
by blowing bubbles as they spray
the old bullfrog next to the fern.
From nature's harmony let's learn.

In flower garden bumblebees
will share the nectar with such ease
with butterflies who wait their turn.
From nature's harmony let's learn.
