Older Poems #21 : Inclemence

these wailing winds weep wild tears
for wasted watching o’er the fears
the forest frowns for mankind’s vain
glorious treatment of his domain
and elemental lights grow dim
to leave our faces dark within
an earth that sickens at our rule
this faded universal jewel
which time could heal if given time
away from humanity’s great crimes
at worst self serving arrogance
at best simple ambivalence.
