Are you?

Are you ever inclined to doubt your maker,
Think life’s all pain and worldly goods
Beating a path to the undertaker?

You’ve never seen morning in the woods!

You’ve never breathed that virgin essence
Of leaves and grass first kissed by the sun.
You’ve never savoured life’s quintessence
When you and the air and the earth seem one!

When you tabulate the splendid things
that can come to you by birth,
there's not a heritage that brings
more joy than love of earth.
