Nature's Calling

a poem by Scott Zentner, USA

If you will,
At the show of Nature,
And find pleasure
In the gifts
That she gives.
For one is deprived
In the muddle
Of modernity,
Wherein gadgetry
Holds sway.
There lies the rub
Of those who trust
The mighty machinery.
But they who pursue
The less traveled way,
As Frost would say,
Will surely be nourished
By the sound of a lark,
Or the sight of a deer,
Or the smell of fresh air,
Or the touch of a breeze,
Or the taste of honey.
And by doing so,
Know that such affairs
Are there for the taking,
And with enrichment of self,
Cherished still more.
