Human Nature Poetry
Servants of All
Human Nature Poetry reminds us of the interaction between humanity and the natural world all around us. See the terrible and tremendous both.
Hints of pending change,
Reminding wanderers of seasons’ range.
We think we know,
Sun, rain, sleet, and snow.
Unthought of winds carry hellish storms to the door.
Thoughts crowd into actions—Reactions Roar.
Yet when a timid vine with blossom blue winds up the rail,
All blusters sail.
Stilled by soundless certainty,
Happiness meets joy in perpetuity.
The perfections of simple beauty—
A man’s able strength,
A woman’s gentle touch,
Children’s innocent play,
The frogs’ night chorus,
A deer feeding across the way…
Unexpected truth alters,
Our challenged wills falter,
Warnings and hints of come what may,
Yet never is, as we say.
See the terrible and tremendous both,
For in honesty lies our growth.
Not gods with plans in hand or self-made giants we,
But servants of all, in humanity.
