Trees are swaying in the sun
the gentle breeze of spring has come.
The blossom bright with pink and white
drops gently down as it catches the light.
Butterflies so beautiful just flutter by without a care,
its great to break away from life just for a day to see them there.
They make their way from flower to flower,
no knowledge of time, to me its hours and hours.
They happily fly as the bees rush by with their orange and black
coloured fur on their backs.
The breeze is so gentle and beginning to warm,
the flowers still budding, many starting to take form
with petals so fresh like a newborn child,
with colours so bright and of all different styles.
The smell is amazing and so divine,
I pick the flowers from time to time
so I can take some of the outside in
and break away from the daily grind and think,
how wonderful the natural world can be
When I feel at my worst I go outside and i'm free.
Yet it costs nothing, not one single penny
to enjoy true wealth that is a gift to so many.
True wealth is the happiness freedom can bring
when you experience nature and hear the birds sing.
When you hear it you know that summer is near
and you have another chance to see everything clear.
What is the beauty of life without these things?
We should appreciate more, all the joy that nature brings.
