The Smell of Earth

I leave this weary patch of sand

For field of green on some fair land

Bare feet enjoy the place I’ve found

A prism of colors all around

My heart feels lighter than before

As I lie down on forest floor

I hold my breath and leave a sigh

Gaze up into the azure sky

Through the glittering emerald leaves

On outstretched branches of the trees

That reach to touch the clouds of white

Each one putting up a fight

Climbing for the noonday sun

To get much closer than begun

And as I lie here on the ground

Breath held tight to hear each sound

Of Nature in her splendor sing

The smell of Earth the smell of spring
