What did I see?

When we say “I saw it!”,

Perhaps we ought to say

We glanced at an image

Before we looked away.

When you draw you really look,

The right shape to define

And so with Nature, really look

The great beauty there to find.

So in your Explorations,

Look underneath the stone,

In between the grasses

For they are not alone

Hundreds of little creatures

Each with a life complete

Are there to be discovered

Beneath your giant feet!

Then you will have really seen,

Nature, for you, unfurled

So take your friend along next time

To share the wonders of our World.
