Hymn to Nature

Glorious nature, surrounding all

From the valley to the waterfall

In you, everything starts

And in the end, to you, departs

The tree, the worm and the bird

All make sense, yet are absurd

Who would conceive a bird to fly?

Who would imagine a fox so sly?

Look at the sun in all its splendor

And the moon, filled with wonder

See the beauty of the shining stars

Who have witnessed all our wars

Under the branches of the great oak tree

Lies a world, more complex than thee

Within the folds of the flowing rivers

Are born the stories of wondrous creatures

Along the lines of the soft breeze

Fly and work countless bees

When you perceive a flower up close

Your senses awaken through your nose

For its fragrance is heaven on earth

As wonderful as a baby’s birth

In your ears plays a marvelous song

Calling you to play along

To forget your worries and all your pain

Just leave it all and go insane

Get intoxicated by the color of peace

Embrace it all, fall to your knees

Fall in love with the adventure

Pay your debt in a hymn to nature
