Sonnet 210

For I have roamed into the naked woods
Leaving stark city lights and sounds behind,
In reverent silence Nature by me stood
And lovingly there took me by the hand.
I walked with her in green cathedrals great,
Then soon along sun dappled crystal springs,
Heard rocks and twigs and leaves beneath me speak
And denizens from hallowed grottos sing.
Though urban sullied, she no malice bore
To this marauder from a caustic age;
With verdant kindness yet she did implore,
That I seek truth, and action there engage.
From Eden blessed to shrinking sanctum shrines,
May God forgive the nescience of mankind.
