Nature did not create the green grass only for the green grass.

Nature did not create the green grass
Only for the green grass.
It created the green grass
To feed the animals.
 
Nature did not create the sky
Only for the sky.
It created the sky in which
The birds can fly.
 
Nature did not create the water
Only for the water.
It created the water as a dwelling
For the fish and tortoises.
 
Nature did not create man
Only for the sake of himself.
It created man as a helper
Of all things around him.
