TRUE NATUREóBy W. S. Haskell
True nature never was confined,
To petals, dew, and shower;
True nature is the vital mind,
That dwells in every flower.
The occupant, not just the cot,
The soul, and not the shape;
In fact, the potter, not the pot,
The God, and not the ape.
Who would not have his footsteps show
Must walk in neither mud nor snow.
