By ancient stones still aglow

In daylight descending

We light the fire and breathe the night

Her wisdom ascending

 

So calm the forest, the trees they whisper

And answer us in kind

With sacred gifts of self-awareness

Love and peace of mind

In the silent hour

When words need not apply

The earth beholds her wisdom

Beneath the harvest sky

 

Here in the woods

Where the wisest things grow

From the roots of mother earth

To the seeds that we sow

 

But how far into the forgotten

Have we gone so long ago?

As twilight casts her shadows

On the wayward ones below

 

While mother earth whispers wisdom

For all who need to know

That it’s here in the woods

Where the wisest things grow

 

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
