I wonder as I wander

Along the twisting trails
by the rivers and the streams
and on the rusty rails
under the bright sunbeams.

Traveling by the tiny shoots
and through rustling meadows
and over exposed roots
under forest shadows.

All that’s surrounding me
takes my breath away.
This natural beauty
holds me in its sway.

And I’m struck by all the grace
lingering in this verdant place.
