“Why play with Nature?” 18th Jan’2008
You cannot stop the sun from shining through.
Nor the rains from wetting you.
Nor the winds from blowing away.
Nor any thoughts that come your way.
Why then the eternal quest to reign?
When Nature in its simplicity is queen.
Why all the efforts to change and prove?
When nature in its course will evolve.
Are we marching drums or thoughtful beings?
Why then are we moving to disasters yet unseen?
Is it not enough that we can laugh and play and sing?
Then why create monsters of everything?
When every thought, word and deed could be a clone.
Where from unique beings and works are done?
Why can’t Art be left for Art’s sake?
Why do we have to play with Nature for God’s sake?
Why not plod and tread gently?
Where Nature and angels bless silently.
