A Naturalist’s Prayer

Nature is my solace, I shall always want. She makes me lay down in lush green meadows. She leads me beside bubbling brooks. She takes me on paths of splendor and wonder.
She restores my soul…
Ye, as I walk through the valley in the shadow of a tree, I will hear no human. My walking stick and pack, they comfort me. She has prepared a view before me, in the presence of mine eyes and anoints my head with a cool rejuvenating rain, till my soul cup runs over.
Surely goodness, character and peace will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in her open spaces till we part.
