I STAND LISTENING “ODE”
I stand listening to the cicadas,|
While contemplating nature—then the frogs
Break into song,
While the sunset still lingers on
Old willows which seem to be singing trees.
As the cold comes in I can’t help but sigh;
Remembering the pine trees
Beneath the wise
And great sky; a rainbow’s aura on you and I.
