In the leafy shadows

Where sunlight filters through,

It lights the pool's surface

In shades of greeny blue.


Within the eerie silence,

Where birds seldom trill.

The soft footfalls of deer

Seem very loud and shrill.


To this glade's quietude

Humans rarely stray.

Only the old shaman

Comes at sunrise each day.


Here he sits and ponders

All life has in store,

And he prays in silence

That it shall be so evermore.
