I'm not saying I don't believe in science—I do—but sometimes I get frustrated with the way that people dismiss the mystery and beauty of nature. Not everything fits in a single category or fact.

They say that magic isn't real

but there will always be magic
in the way the sun rises up from the sea. 

They say that magic isn't real

but there will always be magic 
in the light of stars and fireflies.

They say that magic isn't real

but there will always be magic 
in pale-green spring and flame-gold autumn.

They say that magic isn't real

but there will always be magic 
in the growth of the trees and the fall of the waves.

They say that magic isn't real
they bombard the world with facts and figures

but—

perhaps they have never stood 
at the top of a mountain
with the wind in their hair—

perhaps they have never seen
the fleeting rainbow colors
of freshly fallen snow—

perhaps they have never smelled
the warm damp earth
after sparkling rain.

For nature is an enchantress,
queen of the ever-changing world.

She is far more powerful
than we will ever be. 

They say that magic isn't real

but someday they may find
that magic is always here.
