In The Woods

In the woods my heart does dwell,
Where sun and shadows greet each other,
Where streams and lakes seem to glow,
Doves and bluebirds harmonize,
That is the place I know,
In the woods.

In the woods, the place I call haven
A place where fox and deer run,
The wolves and coyotes roam,
The sun kisses the earth twice a day,
That is the place I know,
In the woods.

In the woods, where warm greets the cold,
The shadows lurk, hiding from light,
The sky that reaches to the universe,
The earth that’s filled with decay yet life,
That is the place I know,
In the woods.
