surround me in the greenery,
lay me down on swaying grasses,
where my heart is no longer quivering,
and the breeze around me passes.
surround me with twisting branches,
nest me in aromatic needles,
where my mind collects its snatches,
and any desire to leave... too feeble.
surround me under clouds and sky,
huddle me in your sun-lit hold,
where my soul is whole and high
where you once taught me to fly,
and only my reach is bold.
