Seduced by the wind,
Stolen on the bird’s wing,
Scattered by a sinuous stream,
Surrendering to mother’s rich soil,
Slumbering serenely in silent time,
Scrupulously caressed by sweet sunshine,
Soothingly nourished by nurturing spring rains,
Suddenly arising from her sheltered long sleep,
Sprouting to reveal her elegance, beauty and sustenance,
Sustaining and securing the line of generations through the ages,
She sweetens the air, spreads her good will nourishing earth’s spirit and soul.
