Deep in the Woods

Deep in the woods, far from the crowded places
is a tranquil glen that Time itself has passed by
a place where legends still live and even grow
 If you walk there with heart and eyes open wide
amazing things will pass some even nodding hallo
poets of days of yore sit scribbling their poems
fired by the inspiration that this sacred place brings

Sit awhile at their feet ponder the words with them
then go to your own corner and pen with fresh eyes
tell of the array of wonders spread out before you
how silent from human sounds is this peaceful glen
the thrilling chorus of exotic birds joyfully fills the air
stroll awhile with Zeus, Thor and other gods of old
listen to the wisdom that they teach as they speak

And when the day is done and nightfall overtakes
lay down under the star studded sky and drift away
follow the paths of your mind as eyes closed you listen
let your soul run free and totally unchained, no fetters
become one with your surrounds in this hallowed place
when you leave you will take with you a very special gift
that of open mind and heart and a better understanding
