While at a poetry met up with a friend I came across this poem on the web and wanted to share it.

When you walk through the woods,
I want you to see ...
The floating gold of a bumble bee,
Rivers of sunlight,
pools of shade
Toads tools sleeping in mossy jade
A cobweb net with a catch of dew
Treetop cones against the blue
Dancing flowers, bright green flies
And birds that put rainbows in your eyes.
When you walk through the woods,
I want you to hear ...
A million sounds in your eager ear
The scratch and rattle of wind-tossed trees
The rush as a timid chipmunk flees
The cry of a hawk from the distant sky
The purr of leaves when a breeze rolls by
Brooks that mumble, stones that ring
And birds that teach your heart to sing.
When you walk through the woods, I want you to feel ...
That no mere human could make this real
Could paint the throb of a butterfly's wing
Could teach a wood thrush how to sing
Could create these wonders of earth and sky
There's something greater than you or I.
When you walk through the woods and the birches nod
Please, meet a friend of mine named God.
