Mother Nature
by
Joseph Browne

I am the winds that rise and blow
Across the hills and hollows.
I am the balmy summerís day,
The star-filled night that follows.

I am the riverís cruising speed,
The tide that ebbs and flows.
I am the painter of the weald,
The perfume of the rose.

Oh, I compose the linnetís songó
Her sonnets and her airs.
I am the choreographer
For dancing wild march hares.

The graceful swans upon the lake,
The mallard and her clutch,
Are of the glorious legacy
From Mother Natureís touch.

For when you see a hallowed moon,
Fresh dew upon the land,
You know I work in unison
With our Lordís mighty hand.

Before I ever read who he was or where he was from, I detected the touch of the old English master poets in his words and phrasing. I said to myself, "I wonder if this man is English." When you learn from the best, you write with the best. Beautiful poem.
