Spring Awakening

I hunger for the pure sweetness of nature
where peace embraces my soul

Lured to the shore and beyond
This is my beloved Groton Pond

Shadows on the shoreline draw me near 
A place of darkness I approched without fear

There is movement and whispers in the wind
the soft moaning call of the loon
The sunset appears in the late afternoon
then comes the gentle rise of the spring moon

The sparkle of  silver water
 and beaches that look like gold
Riches appear before me
as natures treasures unfold

Overwhelmed by it's beauty
 as I look around
I feel great joy and contentment 
in this natural surround

Lullabys of nature can be heard
hear the songs of the red wing black bird
A chorus of  peepers are all around
There is no other place on earth for me
that is full of wonder and so profound
