Life in the Forest

A butterfly alights from a dewed rose As fog begins to lift beyond the trees What mysteries does this new day propose Once sun and sky shine lively through the leaves? An open cottage door within the wood Sways lightly in the whistling wind at dawn The house where once a lonely mother stood Now is home to a doe and her young fawn The forest is alive with sights and souls The past and present to this day align Where weariness of cities takes no tolls To peacefully repose and then resign The wilderness is there in every breath And nature brings its life to even death
