-->“In all things of nature, there is something of the marvelous.”


I just received an e-mail that the lake caves are re-opening
One of my favorite places to visit, while we wait for Spring
It’s only a one-mile walk, over the frozen lake to these caves
My Beasty Boys are always ready, for whatever Nature brings

I’ve visited these magnificent lake ice caves numerous times
And every time, a totally different free Ice Spectacular appears
Mother Nature has always provided so many wonders to behold
And to see them, I have traveled both near and far, over the years

So many people in our modern world today, ignore Nature’s free gifts
While they pay hundreds of dollars to attend a concert, or a Super Bowl
I prefer to seek out the ancient, natural, wondrous, amazing, spectaculars
Like wilderness lakes, wetlands, canyons, and these ice caves in the snow

“In all things of nature, there is something of the marvelous.”

©February 2015, The Old Beasty Boy and Nature Loving Mr. Ed

The piano forte...the things of nature in your poem to
see and behold the experience.

I've never seen those ice caves, but fortunately, a couple of days ago, the evening news got to some to show me what they are like. When the wind is right, in Wisconsin on Lake Winnebago, I'm told that the ice piles up as high as two stories. I've also never seen that.

But I've spent my mobile life seeking out all the free wonders that nature has to offer (and I can get into national parks, monuments, and reserves, free with my lifetime disabled pass) for only the cost of gasoline and lodging to get me where I can walk/roll among wonder. It must be special with dogs because they are so generally happy to be outdoors and so inquisitive about everything that moves and some that don't (the smells).

You've got that right.

Like I said before on the Book of Face, I want to accompany you & the boys to one of those days one day...have to add that to my bucket list...-e-

For someone like myself, it's easy to relate. I've been fortunate in my urban career pursuits to always be near nature, even if it required some short travel. In New York...believe it or not, Central Park is a melting pot of nature's tolerance (after all, it is Manhattan). And then there was Boston, the White Mountains a mere 2 hrs away. Salt Lake City, mountains and lakes 30 minutes away, LA, San Bernardino mtns, and now, my small town mecca of Ashland where the woods (10 minutes away) mountains (30 minutes away) beaches (3 hrs away) your piece here proffers, nothing beats nature.
