Nature’s Lace

Nature’s Lace

The intricacy

So lovely and delicate

No one doeth own

A right to claim

The design

Mercilessly created

For all to see

Who have an eye

For nature’s decorations.

The lace hides her face

Through summer

But in fall she sheds her shawl

And shows for all

Her patterns of grace

Knitted by the hands of angels

To put a smile on your face.

There was no dispassion

In her creation

With love and hope

For all to adore

The beauty and lore

Throughout the seasons

She gives to those with reason.
