So, I’ve never been a true nature boy
Although a cool and lazy night in June
Just sitting in the darkness I enjoy
An open starlit sky behind the moon.
As a gentle breeze caresses my face,
Upon my back I feel the long day’s heat.
And of my cares and worries not a trace
As into relaxation I retreat.
The lightning bugs in flight pay me no heed,
Eliciting a chuckle as they dance,
I wish them best of luck as they proceed
With all the twinkling stars to make romance.
I’m colorblind, so hues I can’t employ…
So, I’ve never been a true nature boy.
