A Good Lesson is Taught--By Dena M. Ferrari--United States

A Good Lesson is Taught

There by the light of the moon you spy
You spy something in the distance far into the sky
Into the sky your imagination is swallowed
Imagination is swallowed by the gale winds that follow
Gale winds that follow the river stream path
Stream path is mixing and churning feeling wind's wrath
Feeling wind's wrath the clouds cover the moon
The moon hidden light will reappear soon

Eager to seek the path once again
Once again the moon shows the path on the glen
The path on the glen reaches the clearing surrounded by trees
Surrounded by trees you relax and feel pleased
Feel pleased that you have found a safe spot
A safe spot where a good lesson is taught
Lesson is taught for those that will learn
Those that will learn a lesson discerned
