Memories to Cherish

                         Memories to Cherish

              Down in the valley, I know an area of forest 
              with a small stream running by.   
              Dappled sunlight paints the moss covered forest floor
              A quiet, peaceful, magical area.
              Nature’s garden clothed in shades of green and gold

              I recall this valley in early morn, white with frost, 
              With snow covering the mountaintops,      
              A surreal stillness grips the valley
              Even the river is hushed 
              As all life awaits the warming of the morning sun.
              Nature’s garden clothed in shades of blue and white

              I remember a lowland riverbed, the shingle covered in 
              the gold of Californian poppies.
              Nature’s garden here clothed in orange and gold, 
              An untamed reserve on this part of the plains, 
              Shared by rabbits, bird life and predators, 
              A land apart from the sterile wire enclosed fields  
              These plains now devoid of the character of gorse fences
              And Manuka stands that once flourished here
              All is not progress in our land

    I agree with you there Brian. Where I live now was filled with Kangaroos and other wild life, but now they have all gone to be replaced by houses and an industrial site. We might as well hang on to nature, and enjoy it while we still can...A good write you have written here My freind.....Peter
