Tribute to Earth Day (Part III)

 What a Wonderful World
(as immortalized by Louis Armstrong)

I see trees of green,
red roses too,
I see them bloom,
for me and you.
And I think to myself,
“What a Wonderful World!”

I see skies of blue,
and clouds of white;
the bright blessed day;
the dark sacred night.
And I think to myself,
“What a Wonderful World!”

The colours of the rainbow,
so pretty in the sky,
are also on the faces
of people going by.
I see friends shaking hands,
saying, “How do you do?”
They're really saying,
“I love you.”

I hear babies cry;
I watch them grow.
They'll learn much more
than I'll ever know.
And I think to myself,
“What a Wonderful World!”

Yes, I think to myself,
“What a Wonderful World!”

Oh, yeah!


See the World in a grain of sand;
And a Heaven in a wild flower;
Hold Infinity in the palm of  your hand;
And Eternity in an hour.
(William Blake)

The Wind, no matter how blustery
remains as silent as it is invisible
until it meets with leaves, kites and flags;
manifesting forces make dreams come true
when they meet with expectation.
(the Universe)

The Effortless Faze of Mother Nature
Grass doesn't try to just grows.
Flowers don't try to bloom...they bloom.
Birds don't try to fly...they fly.

“Mother Nature has so much to teach us
if we are ready and willing to listen.”

All the foregoing says it all!  What more can I say?
