A Naturistic Endeavor
A man once told me that the world was dark,
He said that, "Life is empty of meaning."
Asked him why and I simply replied hark:
Dark is infinite, but light is healing.
He argued that, "Humans are ungrateful--
Selfish things mankind is," he said to me.
Argued with him I did, admitting,
"We are human; let us be faithful and flawed."
He bade proof, secrets, the ultimate key.
"Nature," I said, "is the answer you seek."
He, surprised by the words made beautiful,
(I quoted Emerson, man of the meek),
"Every natural action is graceful."
Give mankind a chance, a fair one at that,
Give them peace and quiet in nature true.
Take them to nature, the holder of fact,
Show mankind the eyes which we all look through.
