children of the forest
walk in kindness towards the Earth,
take what is granted you
and leave behind what is demanded;
remember, we shall all return to the roots of where we stand
so tread softly to the edge of the trees,
and dream sweetly in the heart of the world...
for the soundscape
of the wordless voices.
let your ears expand
sweet child, dear love,
we are all of one family
and one family makes us all;
so cry not in the terrors of darkness...
listen, gently murmuring,
are the rumblings of ancient rocks
and the twinkling of timeless stars
hear, softly whispering,
the songs of the green and the breathing
for we are all the children of the forest
listen to the silence in the noise,
the whisperings in the silence,
the voices of the voicless,
and the voiceless songs of what was once spoken
