Nature Heals

I put this post out in August 2009 but it holds true for me and I am reiterating it for this weeks Gallery

I have had a rough ride over the past week, at least I have plenty of blogging material for a while, but at times it has been difficult. This evening I finally managed to get out with the dogs. Within 10 minutes of walking through the fields, the wind blowing, the birds singing, the clouds passing, I was feeling better. I felt great. I lifted my arms high into the wind and closed my eyes and drank in the feeling.

Nature Heals .

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
