Where The Ravens Roost
Together into the woods we hiked,
Along the brown, leaf littered path,
Beaten down by the many shoes before;
Yet beneath our feet laid a fresh floor.
At the edge, we became majestic eagle’s
Feeling the wind, gazing into the ravine
Over treetops fresh with green
Down into the river flowing free.
Like the graceful deer, we descended,
With the help of winding, wooden stairs
Alongside a wall of smooth, gray rock
Where ravens roost in pairs.
Magic unfolded with the final step,
Where long vines dangled in the sky,
Where trees and grass grew overhead,
And green painted dark places that never dry.
Up over boulders we did climb,
Meeting her highness, queen of trees.
Her gown of roots cascaded over the hill
And grandly into the river it did spill.
Into the face we stared in awe,
For the cliff seemed a hundred persons tall.
Minuet were we in the stillness
As appreciation swelled within us.
Only our footprints did we leave behind.
Wind and rain will push these away,
But the stamp on our hearts,
This will never part.
Happy Earth Day! I hope you get a chance to get outside and hike today. Have a wonderful day!
With a grateful heart,
