a simple song

viewing the tree in full and honest leaf
wet with the rain and startling in its green
indecency of summer is to mean
both more and less than normal plain belief
that nature is a sort of crafty thief
taking all life once she has set the scene
and leaving nothing but the space between
the moments of creation and sharp grief
for here is full eruption of true life
at its great peak of wealth to be adored
by all who wish to see it lasting long
yet who forget both efforts and hard strife
in hope to keep eternal the true chord

and hear within each heart a simple song
