Water flowing over land,
Water running on the ground
Tells me life is close at hand,
Tells me life is what I've found.
Sky of blue with birds in flight
Helps me raise my voice to sing;
Sky of black with diamonds bright
Helps me hear the heavens ring.
Green field of grand tapestry,
Green field teeming with intent
Shows me how I can be free,
Shows me why I have been sent.
On a simple summer day
My heart learns again to play;
All that I am given here
Once again becomes quite clear.
