Nature’s Philosophy

A poem written by a Gainsborough Life reader:

Nature’s Philosophy

Nocturnal birds in sibilant causerie
Forest creatures in distant revelry
While nature’s blanket dims their rivalry
And stills the air to peaceful reverie

How brief is this tranquillity
As hostile meetings in darkened shrubbery
Remind, if only momentarily
That man alone enjoys in camaraderie

Victor Timmons
