Mother Nature in Rupture

Many are the wonders in God's Earthly garden
Spring is release, the Lord's annual pardon.

The fallen, the brown, the dead, and decaying
Are covered in mats Mother Nature is laying.
The rivers refreshed with Spring's overflow
Bring repair, rebirth, and new life, to all that will grow.

The flowers in colors of red, white, and blue
Brightly articulate, "How do you do"?
In brilliant new hues, too numerous to mention
Beauty comes free, to this glory convention.

Animals, creatures, and small creepy crawlers
Flyers and swimmers and things that are brawlers
This forest abounds with flora and fauna
Resurrection - restitution, in a natural sauna

A snake, long and slender of glistening green
Basks in the sunshine, secluded, not to be seen.
A bug, a frog, and a salamander or two
Seek shelter, safe haven, under a privy of blue.

A squirrel in its' searching, probes dead fallen leaves.
Butterflies gracefully flit in the breeze.
Blue birds, a red thrush, and a brown pudgy dove
Scout housing, in leafy, youthful branches above.

How blest I was, to flee the urbane urban structure
To find in the woodland, Mother Nature in rupture.
