I Am Not A Brave Person

I am not a brave person of that i won't lie
For flag or for Country i am not one who would die
I just want to live for as long as i can
And die in my sleep without pain as a very old man
I've never been a soldier or fought in a war
Though from my first homeplace i am one who lives far
Yet many have travelled so many more miles than me
And in my lifetime many places i will never see
I am one who has loved Nature since i was a boy
And learning of her ways i still do enjoy
And though my wonder of her only does seem to grow
So little about her i can claim to know
And though my best years in life to the forever gone
For as long as my health's good i want to live on.
