A journey in a natural setting that leads to a precious discovery

A tall tree strong and upright,

A tree flowing amid rocks and fern,

A songbird's call.

 

These mark the path

Upward, to where the damp turf

Springs under feet no longer dryshod

 

There, where sky and earth and water meet,

There, lie hidden in a rocky cleft

A pearl and a rose petal.

 

I will cherish them forever.
