Splash! As children cannonball into it
Moving the buoyant birds of position
Causing camouflage frogs to ribbet
And forcing the fruit trees to fruition.

Willows sway in their wisdom
Dropping seeds of life to their bright future
The breeze is the known source of the kingdom
Breathing life and cause to spread its fervor

Blooming petals do embroider the coast
So that the frothy water soon colors
And the gill-ed creatures are hap at most
Darting and dashing like all the others

Born and grown to absorb such great wonders
Splashing and thriving into and under.

Fantastic! The rhymth, the alliteration, the way it all flows so smoothly. It moved me (aha & I'm not at all a nature person).  But I loved it. The line: "Willows sway in their wisdom Dropping seeds of life to their bright future"

that grabbed me most of all.
