The Way of the Woodlands

In the forest deep and old

Where the trees do sing and dance

There the faeries and spirits, we are told

Weave hypnotic spells of everlasting romance.

With gnomes, wood goblins and elves at play

Nature’s magic is made real

Leave your mundane cares a spell

New paths await you to re-enchant and heal.

The song of the woodlands calls

For us to leave our mortal woes

Join in the faeries’ ball

Where joy and wonder ever flows.

The land spirits, old and wise

Whisper secrets in the breeze

They teach us how to open up our eyes

And see the magic in the trees.

So come, let us leave behind

This realm of dull and everyday

We may find in nature’s realm

A re-enchantment of our way.
