In Company Of Trees

In the wilderness of winter, when nature’s gone to ground
Lowlands are flooded, sunlight filters down
I’ll wander in the byways, once again to see
The tracery and form of winter’s trees.

In the wakening that follows winter’s weary night
When everything’s responsive to the catalyst of light
I’ll wander in the country, once again to see
The fresh unfolding foliage of trees.

Through changing seasons
Ease comes to me
In company of trees

In the drowsiness of summer, when watercourses dry
And cattle seek for shelter from an overbearing sky
I’ll follow forest footpaths, once again to be
Beneath the canopy of trees.

In ‘mists and mellow fruitfulness’, the earth we hold dear
Has yielded up her harvest: the crowning of the year
I’ll walk among the woodlands, once again to see
The pageantry and colours of trees

Through changing seasons
Ease comes to me
In company of trees
In the glory and gracefulness of trees.
