Blending With Nature


 

A child looks with wonder at the surroundings

not taught to fear but to explore.

Curiosity, driven naturally to study,

leads to interest in this craft,

and to search the unknown. 

This alleviates fear and  misunderstanding

And a love for nature.

With this new awareness,

comes a less fatalistic attitude,

to life in general,

and a realization that --

life goes on, 

even in the most 

minute form.

Children become one with nature

not feeling superior,

but part of it. 

Appreciating every creature

no matter how small.

A new generation of botanists,

and scientists;

A group of preservationists

less sabotaging.

And life becomes less material

and more balanced.

For the benefit of us all.
