EARTH DAY, 1996


Green pastures
And rolling hills
Of God's good Earth
My heart was filled*

Fields and fields
Of wheat so green
For miles and miles
Is what I seen

Little colts
With their mother mares
Spring's life-giving vote
Is what God shares

The road was rough
The trip was good
My eyes drank in
The meadow wood

I finally reached
That powerful place
Where rivers teach you
Life's to face

The beauty
God gives all with eyes
The mountains and the changing colors
Of the skies

The water rushing
Giving you strength
I sat at the fork of the river
And thanked

God for nature
For my eyes, ears, and hands
And the passion it gives
To our promised land

For small flowers
Yellow, purple, white
For big powers
Of rebirth to them with the sunlight

For birds warning others
She's on the trail
Their musical voices
They tell, they tell

Thankful for the hours
I had that day
To leave town behind
Just me and nature play

Our land is a King
Here in the Northwest
And life it will bring
To those who love it best.
