Tranced by the mountains in the distant sky
The shades and shadows took me by surprise
As valleys and peaks shined brightly with life
I lost my heart to this beautiful sight.

I felt as I could touch the mountain tops
And walk the valleys with my pacing heart
And kiss the forest as the snowy cloud
And melt in the earth as fragrant rain drops.

I held this view in my heart’s inner eye
And felt myself as the green forest light
In every pine, oak, bushes and grass
Flowing within all, as the force of life.
