Soft the wind that greets the night

When woodland spirits soon will wake

Fleeting is this evening light

That awaits us here on nightfall lake

 

A quiet walk among the trees

Between the shadows the welcome sight

Of silent fields and summer breeze

In the forest deep of dancing light

 

One with the forest that drinks of the lake

One with the lake that speaks to the sky

One with the sky that shelters the waters

One with the earth that shelters us all

 

Where the river flows through silent veils

In the sheltered forest her spirits rise

On hidden waters and forgotten trails

Beneath the shade of sacred skies

 

Simple are the quiet moments

Woven in the sun

When the forest rests, stars awake

And the rivers softly run

 

Simple are these sacred moments

When the daylight is done

This tapestry of natures’ song

Woven in the sun

 

Those elusive places to free your mind

Dance on the margins of the pages

Like living memories we leave behind

So wistful sweet, hallowed and ageless

 

Are here by the lake, woven in time

In the waters and moonlight sages

These harbors of nature, these masters of rhyme

So wistful sweet, hallowed and ageless
