Leafy greenliness

What beauty we might detect in scenes like this 
Would depend upon our willingness to appreciate 
 The randomness, the natural arrangement 
 Of water, grass, stone and stump, 
While at the same time imagining 
(Projecting, if you will) 
Angelic or childlike creatures 
Delighting in the presence of 
A pond, the leafy greenliness of spring, 
And the warm embrace of sunlight after 
A winter’s lengthy cold and dark…
