Forest Stream

"... bred from the sky, tempered by wind, cloaked with green, home of life..."

Children ask who made you, from where you came, to where you go;
you're too naive to be true, until you are weaned to be free
from hidden springs and aquifers among the rocks and trees;
sweeping down to the fields, rest in lakes, and flow to the sea -
you are bred from the sky, tempered by wind, cloaked with green,
home of life, source of power, bless you and the hands unseen. ~
