Only Stories Told
Do you see beyond the sky?
O'er yonder, far above the clouds
Perhaps beneath the threads we see
Whispered laughters heard unseen
A vision granted, bright and clear
The paths we walked, the ways they've been
When all things were just fresh and green
When all things were just fresh and green..
Seeker hear, do not forget!
Perceive, and learn, to not regret
The mem'ries kept on creatures light
Of smiling nymphs, and soaring sprites.
The stories passed from old to young
Things that used to, things that are
Oh don't you hope for them to be?
The winds that whispered fresh and green?
Beneath the pavements, underneath
The song of earth is soft and clear
Unlearning folks, they do not hear
The source of life, it sings and breathes
What sight when all was stable, clean
When all we saw was fresh and green
A thing that only stories told
A story only trav'llers told
Seeker listen, don't forget!
The joys ancestral spirits hold
Joys we can gift to our own
And pass them on to young from old
Perhaps you'd call us just insane
Unthinking, crazy, societal bane
But what we wish still rings so true
When Nature held what all must do
Do not forget the wisest voice
Is found beneath, found underneath
The pavements, stones, and all we see
The Spirits watching all our trees
Lunatics, crazy, unthinking, insane
Always dreaming, dreaming still..
Things just too far, things that have passed..
When all winds chanted Nature's song..
Perhaps the trees may talk to me now
Or maybe I'll just sleep with fae
But Seeker do remember all
What keeps our hearts still going strong
Do you see now beyond the sky?
Oe'r yonder far beyond the clouds
Perhaps someday you'll hear and see
The hearts that our ancestors hold..
Of things that only stories told..
