The Green Scene
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
Deep writing is the reflection
Of the experienced, contemplative life,
But depth gains clarity
With life also the reflection of writing;
Yours becomes the script of your life,
And you act the part of the wizard
To enlighten the whole world!
Through curious indulgence
In natural inclinations comes
The irresistible downfall,
While sacred regard
For the heart leaping up
Lets the spirit soar!
Lord Autumn just had to know
What made the leaves so green,
And then down they all had to go.
Lady Spring revered
The liveliness of the awakening roots,
And the restored buds appeared!
I behold the trees,
With all their many leaves
Dancing in the breeze!
I especially love this oak.
Its leaves are like chanting tongues,
Why! as though the grand tree spoke!
Its lines are quite worth listening to,
And after a spell I do surmise,
Its verses tell of love that's true!
Yet more! The truth of that love came
From beauty, like its roots so deep,
With vastness not to contain nor tame.
Lo! Now the whole woodland seems to sing
About this Beauty with the uppercase B,
At the very heart of loving truth, and everything!
This woodland green is my stage;
All gray my hair, I play the part:
The wizard come of age!
Author's Notes: All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
As You Like It, Act II, Scene VII
Author's Location: Toledo, Ohio
