Materialism

 

We are given the sky

A view of the sea

Colours of Autumn And all we can see

Soft touch of the breeze

The glow of the sun

Power of nature

For everyone

 

These gifts are all free

Yet shunned for possessions

Has material wealth Stopped us learning the lessons?

 

Nature’s message eternal

It’s so basic and clear

If we worked with our feelings

Then we would hear

The message that’s whispered

'No gain if material'

Natural gifts feed the mind

The soul and the spiritual
