Lady of the Forest

I’ve seen the ravaged earth
Being reclaimed by the greenness of nature,
The charcoal of burnt trees
Disguised by the bright, flowing ferns,
Their newly found raindrops shimmering
In the early morning light.

A picture of placid beauty
The brilliant spectacle
Of an untouched landscape.
The sun’s rays filter through
The swaying boughs
And dance in the undergrowth.

The harsh city lights
Upon the horizon
are seemingly oblivious
To the charm and natural elegance
To be found almost on their doorstep.

When the cloak of darkness lifts
And the first rays of dawn’s light
Jump over the horizon
The forest transforms into a splendid lady
Bedecked in sheer dazzling raiment
With her crystalline hair sparkling
In the new morning’s light
As she awakens from her tranquil slumber.

Lady of the Forest

Artist's Description

I actually wrote this poem thirty-odd years ago when I was sixteen. I’ve tinkered with it a little but it is essentially the same. My perspective on nature – and my loyalty to it – has stayed true. For my children’s sake I am thankful for that.
