Nature's First

Written by: Gail Angel Doyle

Nature’s First Nature’s first rain Quenched the earth To strengthen against pain From harsh storms rebirth Nature’s first snowfall Covered the ground in protection To shield under the ice wall From the weight in its shiny reflection Nature’s first leaf Started the beauty of autumn time That later will blow into a nearby reef Painting the ocean in its sublime Nature’s first sun rays Brought light in the existence of shadows That later will warm the rest of our days From its veil to block the darkness to show Nature’s first rainbow Gave the world a sign of hope we need To this day we haven’t let go Of a symbol filled with creed
