Lovelier Than Nature
by Andrew Rowell

People talk of nature’s beauty
And its elegance
Of how the trees all bow and curtsy
And the rivers dance
But I know one being lovelier
Who flies above this rank
Who forever drinks the water
From beauty’s riverbank
With eyes of gorgeous sapphire
Shining as the blue sky
With skin as soft as a swan’s feather
Never aging by and by
Her name the purest of them all
Of gemstones and precious jewels
She’s the eighth natural wonder

Ignored only by fools
