"A man can pick a fight with anyone, it takes a real man to walk away from a fight."
- Coach Woods, 8th grade P.E. coach


Looking over the green trees far as the eye can see,
A perfect paradise made in nature just for me.
Find the mountains with fog-covered tops,
Pine cones falling to the ground like precious raindrops.
Rivers flowing full of life,
Cut through the valleys like a jagged knife.
Sun shines down in an infinite array of light,
A million stars shine in the middle of the night.
This is why we live here in this wonderland,
Forests abundant in tress, beaches covered in sand.
Fall down in this field and discover the wonder,
Listen in the valleys for the echoes of thunder.
This is nature’s beauty and nature’s child,
Nothing on Earth can tame this magnificent wild.


The author's comments:
My mother and I were headed home from cleaning up the boat one sunny afternoon. I was looking out the passenger side window when I noticed for the first time the beauty of the state in which I lived. I felt so inspired by all that I saw, as soon as I got home, I turned on my computer and began writing this poem.
