Living in the woods is so healing,
soothed by songs of so many birds.
I just want to stay here,
forget there is a world out there
suffering as I once did.
I don’t seem able to help,
used to think I could.
Maybe just keeping one little corner
as tranquil and lovely as I can
is encouragement enough
so others will transform and love
their small corners too.
