Get Rid Of The Advertisements

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.
