Truly Amazing


Bright sunshine rises heralding a brand new day
Dew drops glistening on a bed of grass they lay
A cool breeze flows as it drifts through the air
Leaves dancing and floating with lots of flair

As the time passes by there's a calm and quiet hush
Birds nesting and preening in the thick underbrush
A solitary blackbird is peeking down from its perch
Animals resting quietly until their nightly search

The grass begins to wither under the searing heat
Scorching sun bears down on a field of golden wheat
Nature has its own reminders when it's time to change
Like an old fashion tune that plays outside its range

Planet earth continues to revolve just as we so believe
Then the sun begins to set in her familiar place at eve
Closing its brilliant curtains as it slowly takes a bow
Always called it home then as we continue to call it now
