Inheritance~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

Inheritance

 

land is legacy
left by the life of the wind
by the forces of nature
heirlooms of soil and stone
standing timberlands
cool running creeks at their feet
mountains valleys and meadows
the deserts and tundra
the seabed and river-course
heaving with essence
of serum that animates life

these are gifts
the substantial bequests
from the passing of eons
through fabricant fingers
and generous motives
of sternly affectionate earth
terrains ever aging and changing
and teaching of challenge
which heritor creatures
possess heart sufficiently
apt for the learning
