Oh Goddess, All the Difference You Make!
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
All this pageantry of Nature will fail
Someday to claim as life eternity.
Oh the grief! Still, the world is more pleasing
With these woods making all this difference
With their tries! Older, slower now I move,
With lesser risk of stepping on the toes
Of Nature. See? Leaping off the frog goes!
Hardly do I expect fairies to dance
Before my eyes, these spiritlike beings
All surrounded by material things,
Any more than I would expect a love
Childlike among adult expectations.
Both of these arise in wishful daydreams,
Inner images of things rarely seen,
Blessings of a meadow already lost.
Seeking, may peace in Nature yet be found
In the grace of a snake among the leaves.
Selfish maidens and others of that ilk
Shun the spider and its strong thread of silk,
Stronger than matching filaments of steel!
Still stronger is your faith, if you believe
In a loving Goddess within these woods!
With enough faith, what wonders can we do?
These woods shall pass. I cannot help but grieve,
But still, what a difference it all makes!
Author's Notes: It is in fact true that a filament of steel equally thin is weaker than a thread of spider's silk!
Author's Location: Toledo, Ohio
