1. The Lonely Moon:
The moon sits high
Alone in the sky
It lights up the night
But yearns for a friend’s light
2. The Garden’s Song:
The garden sings
With flowers and things
Fluttering and buzzing
A melody of life’s buzzing
3. The Ocean’s Lament:
The ocean roars
Against the shores
Its waves a cry
For those who have died
4. The Walk in the Woods:
Step by step
Through the woods we trek
The crunch of leaves
Nature’s song we receive.
1. Title: Ode to the Moon
Oh moon, thou art so radiant
Thy light doth touch my heart
The peacefulness thou dost emit
Is nature’s finest art
Thou hangest in the sky so high
A picture of tranquility
Thou givest light to all below
A glow of serenity
Oh moon, thou hast seen the ages pass
Thou art a constant friend
Thy light and beauty shall always last
Until the very end
2. Title: Autumn’s Arrival
A rustle of leaves, a chill in the air
A signal that autumn is here
Pumpkins and gourds, leaves of gold and red
A stunning sight that I am fed
The sun sets earlier, the sky turns gray
A melancholy feeling arrives to stay
The warmth of summer is now just a dream
As autumn’s arrival is what it seems
But with the change comes something new
A refreshing breeze and a sky of blue
The leaves may fall but they leave behind
A beauty that’s quite hard to find
So let us welcome autumn with open arms
And embrace its charm and humble charms
For soon it’ll disappear and winter will come
Bringing snow, ice and cold so numb.
The Way Through the Woods
Oh, they love to tell the story of the way through the woods,
Where the oak trees towered and the sunlight glowed,
And the leaves whispered secrets to those who would listen
Of the ancient magic that flowed.
For there in the heart of the forest, a path did wind
And those who dared to enter found a world unimagined.
For the trees were alive with the sounds of nature’s song
And the air was alive with the scent of things unknown.
And those who sought adventure found it there in the deep,
Where the shadows danced in silence and the mystery did keep
Its secrets, oh so carefully, lest the curious learn
Of the ancient magic that flowed there in the fern.
So if you find yourself wandering, lost within the woods,
Remember to listen closely to the whisper of the leaves
For they will guide you closer to the mystery that hides
In the heart of the forest, where the ancient magic lies.
