Canopy of Green

canopy

Canopy of green

We move underneath you

Feeling ourselves to be

Embraced by an arbour of love

That nature threw over us

Such splendour

That fills the soul

So sorely needed

For barren places

Breed within us a deeper emptiness

And so much of modern life

Burns the green away

Leaving only a pile of smoking ash

War

Wanting

Terror

Conflict

The antidote for this is nature

Peace

Love

Bestowed upon us by a beneficient force

That knows nothing of the terror

Only man makes for himself and his kind

Canopy of green

You soothe Jasper and I

You are a gift from God

One our open hearts celebrate

And give thanks for
