Power down your computer, put your phone away
turn off your TV, go outside and play.
That Netflix series binge can wait
and so can the Facebook you claim to hate.
Nature awaits outside of your door
filled with wonders for you to explore.
You might see a moose or a naked hippie;
the outdoors can be a little bit trippy.
But our public lands welcome us all
though Republicans would drape them in funereal pall.
So explore the gifts we share when this Saturday breaks
National Trails Day, like Christmas, is worth an early awake.
