Walking in the Woods

Restoring myself in nature, what a delight.

Ah, I got myself to the woods
Boy, do I sure wish I could
hike everyday, 
to be in nature and play.
Restoring my energy
and feeling very happy.

I really love to see the breeze
blowing the branches and the leaves.
Smelling the river as it flows,
noticing the flowers that grow
on the path beside me.

Sometimes in the clear
I even catch the glimpse of deer,
that really are quite near,
they haven't much fear.

At times I need to go alone, 
sitting on a log or a stone.
But mostly I just need to be --
with me in the trees.
