By Mike Turner
The stars in the firmament Teach us to shine a light In the face of darkness The trees in the storm Teach us to bend to the wind But not break The sun rising in the east Teaches us that a new day always comes After darkest night And the shells upon the beach Teach us that beauty is left Behind the crashing waves Teach us, O Nature Of our place in Thy Universe As a balm to our Souls
