Feast your eyes

I love this poem by Marjorie Pizer; just perfect for a Spring class.

Feast your eyes on the tops of the trees.

Drink in the dark greenness of the tall gums,

Walk on the firm ground with bare feet 

And absorb the stuff of the earth into your bare soles.

Take branches into your hands,

Feel the leaves with your face

And take in the inner growing of the tree.

Lie close on the leaves of grass

And let them caress your body.

Take the hot sun into your soul

And let the whole sky sweep into your mind.

Give yourself back to the living earth

And the earth will give itself back to you

In unmeasured and unbounded pleasure.

It is in the simple pleasures that one finds the deepest sense of peace and beauty.
