Month: July 2015

The Glen

The glen is small

With a little pond

The trees turn yellow in the fall

Waving like a ferny frond.

 

The beauty of nature

Reigns supreme

We all have beauty, I am sure

Even unto the elvish queen.

 

The flowers bloom and blossom

They have a goodly fragrance

I hold them to my bosom

As I sing and dance.

 

The Newborn Foal

The foal is small and very shaky

As he stands on his own four legs.

His mother nudges and nuzzles him

Encouraging him to stay.

Slowly he takes his first halting steps,

Nuzzling his mother’s side.

As he drinks her milk with growing delight,

He whinnies his happiness.

The Fox

Happily does the fox play,

Bounding through the grassy meadows,

Lapping water from the brooks,

Pouncing on a waryless mouse.

Joyfully does she show her kits

How to leap and how to bound.

Careless, happy is the fox,

With no ties, and with no worries.

Happy is the fox!

The Stream

Gently does the stream flow,

Through the mountain, through the meadow.

Gently blows the breeze above it,

Whispering gently in the ripples.

Gently does the deer walk,

Through the grass and through the rushes.

Gently does the tree look on,

Tall and silent, still and ageless,

Gently does the stream flow,

Through the mountain, through the meadow,

Gently does the stream flow.

The Mountain

Looming tall above the meadows,

Is the mountain, tall and dark.

As it casts its shadow westward,

Its whitened crests glisten.

Behold the snow upon the mountain!

How it shines, and how it glitters!

Behold the pine trees on the mountain!

Dark and tall, but strong and wise,

The mountain looms above us.

The Sun

The Sun wakes us up every morning

As the birds call and chatter.

The Sun warms us up as it moves up top

As we dig and weed in the garden.

The Sun stands above us, high and mighty,

As we eat our noonday meal.

The Sun follows its course, ever westward

As we play and laugh together.

The Sun goes down, calling ‘Taps’

As we tumble into our beds.
