The Walking Stranger

A stranger the world calls strange,
For reasons stranger
Walks in no search but solitude
In trails the strangest

When the trees of the boulevard ask
Have you touched him
He says, yes of course
In your supple green

When the warblers in the skies ask
Have you heard him
He says, yes of course
In your saccharine song

When the winds wholly wayward ask
Have you felt him
He says, yes of course
In your silent breeze

When the stars of the nightfall ask
Have you seen him
He says, yes of course
In your silvery light

When the mortals under oblivion ask
Have you found him
He says, yes of course
In thy part, in my heart
In our nature and so I walk.


PS:"Nature is the art of God"- Dante Alighieri.
