If We Stare Long Enough… 

Caroline Cox

If we stare long enough 

this is what we see: 

a fox in a field, a butterfly, 

a glorious, working bee. 

If we stare long enough 

the nature comes to us; 

a ladybird, a blue tit 

a wild rabbit, a thrush. 

If we stare long enough 

and open our eyes to see, 

a beautiful world in front of us; 

a wood, a cloud, a tree. 

If we stare long enough 

and enjoy this world for free  

we won’t regret admiring it 

and take time to really see.
