Today I sensed what it might be like
     to tremble before God
     as I gazed upon long blue ridges
With their golden-hued leaves
    turning to soon meet their fates

I was overwhelmed by its magnificence,
     the power of its beauty… and I feared
     that it might stop my beating heart

One day I, too, will die blissfully
in the cradle of nature’s loving arms
