The Mountain Scene
There is a calming effect about a placid lake-
The crystal blue glass, barely making a wave,
The only sounds are movements we make.
The wind softly whispers through the trees,
Nature’s beauty is all we see.
The sun makes crests sparkle like gems;
The mountains around glow a soft red.
And next to me a pine stands dead, those of its kin planted around,
Tall they stand, tall and proud- oh, so beautifully holding their ground,
Through driving wind and biting cold,
I see before me Nature’s beauty unfold.
