I live for beauty

I live for beauty

A Poem by peter Duggan

All for the beauty of the lake


I Live For Beauty


I live for beauty

That’s all that takes for me

To be a man of many smiles

I feel the mystery

Of the flowers, the shrubs, the trees, the breeze

And the joy of the mornings bird song

It’s when I walk these wetland trails

That I know where I belong


I love the wetlands

They’re the healing of my soul

To walk beside this shimmering lake

It makes me feel so whole

When those birds sing joyously

And my feet scratch, scratch along

As the trees dance to the serenade

My heart becomes a song


Each day I go there

I walk down by the lake

Where kangaroos be often seen

And with my camera take

Some pictures of the lake, the trees

Or maybe a bird or roo

I gain such joy as I walk this trail

It’s a thing I love to do
