Filing up on Nature
Mattmckeown

While hiking in the woods,
 1
I enjoyed all nature had to offer.
 2
 
 
I passed giant oaks, tall maples,
 3
dark walnuts and white ash too,
 4
 
 
big breasted robins, brown sparrows,
 5
red cardinals, speckled warblers
 6
 
 
wild flowers, clovers, ferns
 7
and a hibiscus or two.
 8
 
 
I found squirrels, chipmunks,
 9
lizards, salamanders and snakes,
 10
it felt planned 'or my sake.
 11
 
 
Then I came across an unexpected
 12
treat, a tiny spring, a watering hole,
 13
 
 
parched from my trek, I knelt down,
 14
scooped some with my cupped hands
 15
and drank until-
 16
filled.
