The Undiscovered Country, Pages 44 & 45

Gary Hart (California, United States) on 3 October 2009 in Plant & Nature.

Each day while I'm away I'll post images and poetry from my book, The Undiscovered Country. Enjoy!

I Know Not Why

I lift mine eyes against the sky,
The clouds are weeping, so am I;
I lift mine eyes again on high,
The sun is smiling, so am I.
Why do i smile? Why do i weep?
I do not know; it lies too deep.

I hear the winds of autumn sigh,
They break my heart, they make me cry;
I hear the birds of lovely spring,
My hopes revive, I help them sing.
Why do i sing? Why do i cry?
It lies so deep, i know not why.

This one takes my breath away every time I see it...It is the first image that I saw of yours, and remains my favorite! It is just exquisite!
The poem you chose to go with it really describes my feelings when I see this. The feelings of nature filling my soul.
