Tranquillity

By 4th October 2007December 9th, 2019No Comments

Oh dear sweet woodland of pure tranquillity
Oh how I bathe in your ethereal beauty
Nature’s cathedral in majestic splendour,
Rising, aspiring, saluting the sky
Let not it silence fool you, nor its stillness belie
For if you pause a moment upon your passing through
You’ll hear a choir of angel’s song to freshen you anew
All manner of creatures are there, although hidden
They’ll bid you come! Come join in our congregation
Do as they bid, my friend, and linger a while longer
Your heart will be lifted, your senses heightened,
Your resolve stronger
Reach out; capture its essence secrete it away in your mind
So when you feel bruised and battered,
By the injustice of mankind
Release it; and let the scene unfold
Allow it to breathe; it’s yours to behold
Oh dear sweet woodland of pure tranquillity
Oh how I bathe in your ethereal beauty
