Winter Whispers

That Nature Revises

Can any human

wunderkind

rival the sculptures

of water and wind?

Can any voices

charm or please

like the singing sands

that vibrate, tease

on the Island of Eigg

in the Hebrides?

Can any artist's

painting vie

with the Maelstrom's

giant, piercing eye?

Gorges, cascades,

canyons, hills:

Scan, copy,

probe them as we will -

earth's wonders always

are wonders still

that Nature revises

endlessly,

never content

to let them be.
