I get a rush among the trees,
I make each journey faithfully.
With arms wide open, creed for sky;
I’ve heart for dog and butterfly.
Who is the one to question me?
Surrounded by it all, I’m free.
The clash is will nature stay free?
Driven to tears—call the police.
So sweet the action to maintain;
man the slayer—here comes the pain.
I’d like to put my fears away;
Still breathing is a fine green day.
