Happy New Year!



Happy New Year everyone! This is the most amazing poem I found on this cool blog.




THE HEART OF NATURE,

by American poet Edwin Gordon Lawrence.


There's a soul in the breeze as it goes softly by,
A soul in the tree as it sends forth a sigh,
A soul in the bird as it carols its song,
And a soul throughout Nature the whole day long.
Then list to this soul as it beats out its tune,
The tune which is heard in December and June,
In all the wide places of land and of sea,
Of river and mountain, of sky and of lea.
To those who in sympathy, joy, love and truth
Attune themselves gladly with fervor of youth
With the great soul of Nature pulsating life,
Reverb'rating strength through the channels of strife,
Will be given a pleasure of infinite joy,
A thrill of delight which no pain can destroy.
So go close to Nature in quest of her heart,
Receive at her hands joys that ne'er will depart.

What a sweet picture! My brother lives in CO and he takes pics of deer that wander into his backyard. This deer looks like he is saying, "please don't shoot me!" (lol, my brother loves to hunt!).
