Feminine, beautiful, earthen
The wood nymph sits high upon a tree
Overlooking a near, yet distant city

Industrialization overshadowing nature
The smog sickens the woodlands
Emerald tears fall from her eyes

Archaic wishes fill her mind
“Why did they abandon nature?”
She wept as so little trees were seen

Humanity left nature
and all that is left
is a weeping forest

and a lone, weeping nymph.

The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this piece after I witnessed how humans seemed to have abandoned nature for a love of technology. Sometimes I wish we would revert to a more archaic lifestyle.
