Many Look - Few See

By Dave Hanks

	Behold the forest:  Shrub  flower  tree
		Many will look - But few will see

	Pine  Aspen  Fir - Schematically intertwined
		Endless plant variety - It boggles the mind

	But who knows this?  Who will understand?
		And take time to grasp - The great master plan

	Recreate in the car - Pay park entrance fees
		Whizz on through - Its nothing but trees

	But there are animals about - Your eyes must be quick
		To see takes patience - Its really no trick

	But seeing the beasts - Is just the start
		The overall scheme - Is the very best part

	You must look and look - This I firmly believe
		But how many times - Must we look to perceive?

	To perceive what is there  And not just rely
		On the words of others - But see with our eye!

	Developing appreciation  (Is this odes thrust)
		of EVERTHING in nature - That is a must!

	And help us cope with those - Lord help us please!
		That cant see the forest - Because of the trees

(Look quick to see Black Bear cubs at the base of a pine)
