River water ripples like a smooth glass surface.
Crickets play the drums while birds sing a joyful song.
The sun leaves the sky and leaves no trace,
The moon rises and dances along.
Rain droplets fall to make many things new,
And flowers bloom like fireworks.
Fresh leaves decorated with dew,
Stones sink, not floating like a cork.
The natural scent of sweet lavender—
The smell of nature fills the air.
Waterfalls drop from the sky and meet the river.
Butterflies fly in their home, the sky, an animal fair—
The dreams of nature all come true.
The clouds quietly float in the sky so blue.
