I love a lonely winding road

That takes me where I cannot see

Until each softly rounded hill

Reveals its landscaped mystery.

Where nature’s stage creates the plot,

What ere the scene may be.

I love the crocus call in spring,

The first to wake from winter’s sleep;

Translucent bits of ivory joy

So patiet under snow banks deep

‘Til they can lift each star-like face

And proudly Nature’s rhythm keep.

I love the fiery autumn hues,

Too harsh to bear in gentle spring

But welcomed by the strident wind

That makes the mightly pine tree sing,

Freeing the crimson leaves that dance

Like bright birds, high on wing.

I love the wonders of this world,

The secrets nature guards so well

From those who have no time to spend

Who will not lift the ocean’s shell

And listen to the murmured tale

That each one has to tell.
