Life is about the little things,
The gemstones round our feet.
Being woken by sunlight,
The cherry scent of the springtime.
Going into the morning forest for kindling,
The sun slanting like beam from the sky.
Feeding a robin in February snow,
Listening to the bright jewellery of his song.
Watching someone coming home from school
With a handful of chestnuts and a long story.
Listening to the great spirit of the wind
Wrestling with the trees all through the night.
Laughing at the huge thrashing of rain,
Running and laughing through the autumn rain
