The Earth is my Cathedral with its lofty Trees above
The Sun filters through green Leaves and warms like golden Love,
And the Birds sing around me like the best of Choirs grand...
The Creator that I Pray to is the one who made this Land;
This is the best Church I have found...its Beauty not Man-made
Creator made for me my Home, the best plans ever laid..
And I beneath the Heavens blue raise up my hands each Day
For I feel at One with all Life when I come outside to Pray...
Fields and Meadows wide with Grass and Flowers scent the Air
And every Living thing I Love so tenderly I take care...
I walk in Beauty every Day in Shadow and in Light
Precious is each Living thing....Magic, Sacred, Bright;
Here in my Cathedral there's no Human Judgments, Blame..
There's no Conditions placed on Love and no Human Shame
Each Creation lives its Life and knows that it is Good...
From Waters, Plants, Mammals, Birds, and even Rocks and Wood!
Not one better than another...all Connected..all the same
The Life Force lives here all around in different form and name...
Oh! Nurturing Cathedral grand with Stars and Moon and Sun
I will Live out Life here and return to Dust when it is done....
