The Greatest Show on Earth.

Far removed from a three ringed Circus,
Billed as the greatest show on earth,
Geared to making money, All captives,
The audience, participants,animals and human,
They gasp scream, clap at unnatural acts.
Now leave it all behind you, watch nature’s show.

Lean on a gate, sit on a log, or grass slope,
Keep still, listen, let nature engulf you !
Now observe, feel, be part of the scene.
First the lambs as they skip and run,
From tree stump to gate, and back again.
Not heeding the warning bleat of their mothers.

High in the sky nature’s orchestra starts up.
The Skylark’s song so pure and sweet.
Contrast that to the circus drum.
The bids in the hedges now join in the chorus,
All singing their different tunes, yet harmonising.
Nature alone know how to accomplish this.

Roll up, Roll up, to see this great show!
Do it quietly, not striking a discordant note.
No open mouthed box office to swallow your money.
This show is free for all to enjoy,
Taking place continually for all to join in.
This time , however, for just me and my maker.
