The greatest of Kings can command
the respect and power of all,
but a King can not decide
when Nature brings in the fog.
The richest of Men can muster
all his strength and wealth to
buy the world, but he can not change
Nature’s blanket of blue.
The Achiever can garner
respect for all that he has done,
but he can not equal all the power
and glory of Nature’s sun.
But the wise, they take nothing
for their knowledge. They watch,
and think, and ponder, and know that
nature is something they just can’t match.
