Deep in the forest

Where stars shine so bright

Not far from the embers

That glow in the night

 

By the sacred fire

We gather to learn

What fools never fathom

The wisest will yearn

 

But speak not a word

For words would not do

Mother earth beckons softly

Her silence is true

 

A walk in the forest

Along the winding trail

In the company of simple things

Our madness conceals

 

Surrounded by silence

Along the winding trail

Nurtured by nature

A wisdom that heals

 

Beneath lofty wonders

Along the winding trail

We surrender to mother earth

Her mystery reveals

 

Mother earth is calling

Our time has come

No room to deny

What has been done

 

While dancing like fools

We smile for naught

Blinded by illusions

Our madness has wrought

 

But truth is before us

If we listen in kind

Mother earth is calling

With wisdom to find

 

Beneath the vastness of lofty spaces

The waters whisper to earthen skies

While silence speaks in sacred places

Upon the lake her spirits rise
