Nature is not alike;

red reigns over green,

browns bend to blend

and lilac leans,

perfect petals poised

over tiny tufts, trembling,

buds unfold from

stretching stars.

Nature is not alike.
Humanity could be harmonious

if we delighted in our differences

with dignity.
Nature is not alike. Why should we be?
