The demands of life

Ask that we never pause, never stop

We mistake work without ceasing

For virtue and character

While nature keeps her pace

Blooming and fading

On her own cycle

As we push and race

And keep our heads down

But, oh, how we miss these quiet wonders

They wait for us to lift our eyes

And broaden our view

From beyond the next task

Until we can flow

Into nature’s rhythm

And breathe in the beauty

Of the Earth – Caroline A. Slee
