Now the Saffron Finch is sitting
near a Capirona leaf
and the tropic rain is spitting
through the heat to bring relief.
Far, the river mouth is stretching
as it reaches for the sea;
nature’s verdant grandeur etching
epic beauty, wide and free.
Flowing to the azure ocean
where the creatures of the deep
move with undulating motion;
whales and dolphins dive and leap.
Earth’s magnificence unfolding
echoes of a primal song.
Secrets of creation holding
mysteries through ages long.
