THE GIFT OF SOUNDS
Sometimes nature is too grandiose|
Overwhelming beyond our limits of delight.
And tell me please where does substance abide.
Too far deep down in the bowels of nature.
That too is beyond our reach to fathom.
Ah! But then there is poetry, that special gift
For a poet to rhyme such thoughts in sounds
And speak what cannot be described within bounds.
In nature you will never find the words.
It's the sounds that you hear like those of birds.
