Beneath a Shade Tree

You know, I like a shade tree.

Rising high above me

As a place to rest under,

And consider the things I wonder.

 

Whether the world around moves fast or slow;

Sitting there satisfied, I wouldn’t know.

Under nature’s canopy,

Beneath a shade tree.

 

Thoughts move freely through my mind.

Moments of illumination shine,

which give me mental clarity.

It worked,too, for Newton and gravity.

 

You may find this silly,

But have you ever really

Rested under nature’s canopy,

Beneath a shade tree?
