Nature’s Classroom

 I have wept
 with the browning, naked boughs
 that once displayed vibrantly decorated
 leaves of autumn.
 I have walked
 alone in the silence 
 of winter’s barren and cold landscape.
 I have danced
 with joy and anticipation 
 at the sight of new buds on those boughs
 the onslaught of emerald green oceans of grasses.
 Nature has taught me,
 without my knowing I was in school,
 about waiting and hoping and rejoicing – 
 nature has taught me
