So much to See

Spread the love

Nature_leaves_wet_stones_water_drops_selective_coloring_1920x1080

Around us so much there is to see;
Echo: Spree
Observe the grim and desolate sea
Echo: Plea

Oh wither not this branch and leaf;
Echo: Leap
The battle is fierce and time is brief
Echo: Believe

Do listen and reflect – resolve to learn
Echo: Yearn
Express your interest – express concern
Echo: Turn

Eyes have opened with age and time
Echo: Crime
Come let us speak while still in prime
Echo: Climb

Oh strive for peace and strive for joy;
Echo: Ploy
Cause prudence seeks to not destroy
Echo: Oy

Sense of mission and sense of duty
Echo: Duly
Devise a future that’s full of beauty
Echo: Truly
