The Savage Wilderness

snow capped mountain alaska

The savage wilderness

on this spring day

cold and wild

as we make our way


Snow is melting

plants awake again

beautiful colors emerging

animals exit their den


An inhospitable environment

speaks of wonder anew

life begins to thrive

on the spring’s dew


The river ice is melting

turning the water blue

canoeing across

creating a path anew


Wonder for all to see

as the seasons change

a living planet’s beauty

within our eyes range


God provides for us

in this savage land

meeting all our needs

on a planet so grand
