Morning Song

I hear you Mother Earth
Your messenger sings to me
from the tree top
Your many arms embrace me
Each morning you are there
even before my eyes
feast the morning glow
You are there
to remind me of beauty
lest the world
becomes too much for me
Your memory goes deep
into my earth soul
and when my vitality sinks
your energy pulls me up inside
and clothes me
as you do yourself in summer
Let the warm sun of morning
fill me with the color of Life this day
and I'll fly away in joy
with the voice that began it
