Simple beauty

In a wood
By the path
In among the brambles
There it stood
Trees all around
Grass and branches
Birds and bees
There it stood

Nothing else to equal it
Only noticed by those aware
There it stood
There was no scent
There were no signs
There it stood

We search all over
We desire it all the time
Yet there it stood
There it stood for all to see
Yet no one noticed
It was not in lights

There it stood
There in the woods
Simple beauty
