In the midst of my life's wandering
I stopped by the river sound, aware,
to hear the clear cold water rushing down, and down,
to see the laughing spray, to laugh my time away
in pondering.By the clear crystal waters, I made my
journey's rest, where crystal waters
laughed I made my nest.

In the green forest light I sat so still,
to hear the dancing sound, the forest silence,
still, to rest my will

Deep in the forest by the water pool,
I rest myself in Heaven's simple school;
I drink by falling crystal stream
and watch with silent joy the simple dream.
