Look upon the golden river
See how it shines?
It gurgles softly
As all around does it wind

Yellow-red surround us
Trees of evergreen
Complement the wild flowers
Mother Nature loves to be seen

Watch the small critters
Scuttle and run
How happily they live their lives
And the children never stop having fun

Behold the larger animals
Gathering food to eat
Squirrels chatter while looking for nuts
Sustenance stored all so neat

As for our flying cousins
They sing a song oh so pretty
Wings and body never stop moving
Keeping eyes out for a kitty

See it all as never before
Gaze upon this beautiful world
Listen to the sounds of nature
Observe the secrets all unfurled
