Nature's Symphony.

Practising my yodelling at Lake Grassmere, Lakes District, UK. 


Nature's Symphony.


There's a song flows through the mountains
There's a rhythm in every stream
There's a tune that soars with the eagles
Over every prairie green.

In frozen wastes rhythms vibrate
When crystals ring in high frequency
And in desert sands wind's whispering hand
Creates soft notes of harmony.

While some ignore or will not listen

Or just hear cacophony
There are those who'll join in chorus
And sing Nature's Symphony.
There's a song flows through the mountains
There's a rhythm in every stream
Will you join in Nature's chorus
Or will you chant her requiem?

There's rhythm as seas crash and thunder
As waves break upon rocky shores
Falling leaves of Autumn rustle
There's a song in there and more.

When a robin sings with pleasure
His song as Spring bursts forth
Released from chill grasp of Winter
Daffodils will trumpet their worth.

For those who enjoy Earth's treasures
There's a song that you will hear
You'll do your part to share your heart
And spread her music everywhere.

Can you hear sweet Nature singing
Her symphony so clear and strong?
Some will never hear her singing
While others gently sing along.
There's a song flows through the mountains
There's a rhythm in every stream
Will you join in Nature's chorus
Or will you chant her requiem?

There's a song flows through the mountains
There's a rhythm in every stream
I will join you in the chorus
I'll not sing her requiem.

I've copied this comment in for Neneng.

Another beautiful and very touching poem about beautiful nature that you wanted to keep safe and remain beauty, Jim McIntosh.
The contents of this poem is actually very persuasive. I hope leaders in this world will widely open their hearts, eyes and ears , knowing that our world is not only aging but heavily sickening by ignorant people who tortured this nature heavily by their irresponsible deed and behavior.
You sent the message beautifully, Jim. I hope they have time to read this.
