but now, oh! It’s easy.
The steps were so much steeper before,
but look up! It’s just like breathing.
There’s so much farther to go…
There are many miles more to explore,
so many fascinating twists and turns,
with knotty roots and disappearing curves…
They’re just beyond the next bend,
just across the forest floor.
So let the leaves,
fluttering on the tender breeze
point the way,
Let the sun shine down on you
in it’s dappled golden delight.
Let it’s beating wings flutter past
your sweet and curious face.
It is all alive
and guiding you
to your private stretch of shore…
The place where you can truly view
the teeming world from your own door…
And as the dusk slides down its silk
to gently fold you in,
You’ll find your heart is waiting there,
in the warm embrace of nature’s skin.
