Can we listen to the waters

Hear the woodlands speak

Open our eyes to the skies

See our follies and deceits

 

Can we learn from the stars

Ever straining out of reach

Like the sharp edges of truth

Always hurt, before they teach

 

Can we listen to the sounds of wisdom

The wind through the trees

Open our eyes to the skies

Begin again to see

 

Hear the waters whispering

Where the mossy river flows

As tree spirits wander

Beneath a silent repose

 

The breath of deep pause

On the river of peaceful rhyme

A gift of wisdom from mother earth

Reflections of sweet sublime

 

Deep in the forest

The hidden light will seek

The silence between the ebb and flow

The peace of shadow creek

 

Beneath the woodland garden

Lofty spirits speak

Whispers sacred wisdom

In the shade of shadow creek

 

In the sheltered forest

The hidden light did seek

This silence between the ebb and flow

Home of shadow creek

 

The breath of deep pause

On the river of peaceful rhyme

A gift of wisdom from mother earth

Reflections of sweet sublime

 

As waters whisper a timeless muse

The earth embraces the morning shine

The light of nature we can’t refuse

Through the woods of peaceful rhyme

 

Every river shares her story

Morning whispers in woodlands deep

Misty tales of nature’s glory

Wistful rhymes for all to reap

 

Speak to us your words sublime

As silent spirits fill the air

Across the waters of emerald shine

Her wisdom calling for all to share

 

As waters whisper a timeless muse

The earth embraces the morning shine

The light of nature we can’t refuse

Through the woods of peaceful rhyme

 

The breath of deep pause

On the river of peaceful rhyme

A gift of wisdom from mother earth

Reflections of sweet sublime
