Where it was

And it was there
right there
in the woods.

All I wanted to know,
it was in the light,
in the green of the leaves,
in the sound of the sea
at a distance,
all was there.

Birds sang in discussion,
I heard a cuckoo
and its echo
and the wind blew
with kind whispers,
explaining the world.

All was like it had been
for ever
and all was there
for me to take in.

But I had to move on,
go home to watch
the six o’clock news
and I forgot
what it was
right there.

But it was all.
That much I know.
And it was there.

I made the photo a few days ago here on Terschelling.
