NATURE’S MUSIC
~ Carole McLaughlin ~

 

BIRDS’ SONG, CRICKETS CHIRPING,

BREEZES RUSTLING THROUGH THE TREES.

LISTEN! CAN YOU HEAR THE JOY?

NATURE’S MUSIC, LOVELY MELODY!

 

SPRINKLING RAIN, WHISPERING SNOWFALL,

A BROOK IS BUBBLING BY.

STOP TO LISTEN, YOU WILL HEAR IT.

HEAR THE TREETOPS SOFTLY SIGH.

 

NATURE’S MUSIC, COMPOSED IN HEAVEN,

MUSIC FOR US ALL TO SHARE.

DIRECTED BY A HEAVENLY ANGEL

NATURE’S SWEET MUSIC – EVERYWHERE!

 

NOW THE ANGEL SMILES WITH MISCHIEF,

DECIDES IT'S TIME THE MUSIC SOARS.

ANOTHER SOUND IS SOON FORTHCOMING,

LIGHTENING FLASHES AS THE THUNDER ROARS!

 

THE ANGEL OF NATURE’S MUSIC

SMILES UPON US AND PLAYS THE TUNES,

BUT HOW OFTEN DO WE STOP TO LISTEN?

EACH SPECIAL NOTE IS GONE TOO SOON!

 

THE CRY OF A HAWK, THE FLUTTER OF WINGS,

THE SCURRYING SOUND OF A RABBIT SMALL.

A COYOTE’S CRY, A SWEET LULLABY –

NO, WE NEVER HEAR THEM ALL!

 

NATURE’S MUSIC PLAYS ITS TUNE,

THE ANGEL DIRECTS THE SHOW.

WE MUST STOP AND ENJOY THE CONCERT

AND BASK IN THE ANGEL’S GLOW.

 

NATURE’S MUSIC, ALL AROUND US.

THE ANGEL DIRECTS EACH JOYOUS NOTE.

NATURE’S MUSIC, STILL ASTOUNDS US

FILLS OUR HEARTS WITH LOVE AND HOPE!
