A natural pond gathers leaves in the fall
and in spring the algae bloom.
So in the end and after all
the material requires much room.
When you leave it to nature to follow this course
a layer of mud will sink down.
Sunshine and infrequent wind endorse
the green to turn slowly to brown.
One lifespan of man is not enough
to see what eventually grows.
But watching the process can be really tough,
for you see the pond gradually close.
