By Christine Parcells
The gentle rain, a sound’s delight
Melodic dancing, so soft and light
Sweet chorus from the bird’s dear song
That peace and calm for which I long
The sky is grey, the air slight chill
Yet my spirits rise, my heart does fill
Beauty remains, this earth will heal
Through love and care, our souls must feel
Deep breaths, be still. With you, I stand.
Two feet, one heart upon this land.
Deep breaths, be still. We carry on.
Tonight, tomorrow, each day’s new dawn.
