Deep in the forest of moonlit skies

Shadows are dancing to the fire

Silence she sings into the night

Songs of mother earth, nature’s choir



Nurture my heart into the night

Feel my spirit upon the breeze

Sow my soul on the river of truth

And scatter my wisdom to the seven seas


Sweet sunshine speak to us

Just like you did before

In the forest beneath the tree

Above the sunbeams soar


Peaceful waters sing to us

Just like you did before

By the lake her eyes they see

The earth we can’t ignore


Woodland spirits show us the way

Just like you did before

Rising mist reveals the day

With wisdom to explore


Paint me a picture weathered and wise

Today not tomorrow, leave the disguise


It’s not hard to see faces, worn and weary cases

Drifting between raindrops and the silence between spaces


It’s so easy to use hatred, be blinded to what’s sacred

Played by the foolish, frightened and naked


So paint me a picture, as tall as the moon

Show us some wisdom, say now never soon
