Come take a walk with me, spring version

It is earth hour today, and I thought I would honor that by posting one of my favorite poems about nature.

The dog in the poem was our Mikey, who died almost 7 years ago. He loved to dart through the park.

----

Come take a walk with me,
See our beautiful world through
Eyes of magic and wonder

See all the trees in bright green
Dressed up for a brand new spring
Branches reach out in celebration

The fresh spring air is alive with joy
Makes us giggle as we walk on
Adventure awaits at the next turn

Daffodils dance on the breeze
Happily stretching yellow leaves
To meet the tree filtered sunlight

Birds fly back and forth to their nest
Perched high in the chestnut tree
Branches shield the nest from the sun

A dog runs wildly through the forest
Spring in his bones, joy in his step
He barks at nothing, dancing on air

The pond is silver in the joyous light
Water lily spreads her leaves and
Promises the flowers will come soon

And then we turn again, left, right
Footsteps follow each other, each
Placed in joy in the nature we love
