Lying beneath the weeping willow
The grass so green and lush
Hear the lullaby so gentle
Be quiet now, please… hush.
Close your eyes, breathe in and out
All the herbs and flowering trees
Cleanse your mind of thoughts and dreams
Any sadness that shouldn’t be.
Let Mother Earth hold you close
As she holds you in her arms
The sights and sounds around her
All the magic of her charms.
The unicorns, the butterflies
All gather in the meadow
Dragon flies, all of the woodland creatures
All are soon to follow.
Spring is here, birds chirp with delight
All of the forest begins anew
Happy to shake off the damp, cool blanket
Of the protective, morning dew.
Frolicking thru the tall green grass
The deer and fox appear
Happily joining all the others
Who have made it safely here.
The chipmunks scampering across the branches
Of the bushes and the trees
The rabbits, the squirrels the opossum too
Have come to be with me.
I cherish the love and company
Treasures more valuable than gold
Never tarnished, never changing
Forever young …. forever bold.
