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

 

Gentle winds caressing

The fading evening light

When nature speaks her silent muse

And whispers to the night

 

All is quiet on the lake

Peaceful wistful wise

As nature reaps her silent muse

Beneath the harvest skies

 

Deep in the forest when nature speaks

Quiet the wisdom the wisest will reap

 

Beneath rolling thunder when nature speaks

Echoes of mother earth, in silence she weeps

 

But new dawns beckon when nature speaks

Arise from our slumber with wonders to seek

 

In the silent hour

When words need not apply

The earth beholds her wisdom

Beneath the harvest sky

Beneath the vastness of lofty spaces

The waters whisper to earthen skies

While silence speaks in sacred places

Upon the lake her spirits rise
