One day, I set off for a long walk, mind cluttered,
A sojourn into the woods, deep.
A new world, limitless, enigmatic, and unfettered,
My euphoric heart began to leap.
Dense leaf canopy, emerald foliage, slopes steep,
Sunbeams playing hide and seek,
A cricket’s chirping disturbing a lizard, half-asleep,
I found a happy gurgling creek.
Nature’s beauteous wonders rendered me meek,
I felt great gratitude seep.
Return I did, my difficult life, now no longer bleak,
The sights? Mine to keep.
