This poem is about how nature can teach you more things than books.

Books can teach you a lot of things

But nature can teach you more

Nature can take you to many different places

So that you will be able to soar

Books don’t teach you everything you need to know

You need to get out and explore

Your mind needs experiences that books don’t give you

And the keys to open up a door

Nature can take you on a trip through a field

Or along the banks of a stream

Nature can take you to the top of a mountain

Or any place that you can dream

To get through life, you need more than just books

Because things are never what they seem

Nature allows you to get up close

And experience life to the extreme.
