Oh Mountain

Oh mountain,
you please my soul greatly.

Oh wildflowers of the rocky mountain edges,

Oh towering mountain tree,
great wisdom is yours.

Even though I knew

We see, and we are seen.
But always we.
We search, and we are searched.
But always we.
We find, and we are found.
But always we.
We listen, and we

The Styles of Old

I. The styles of old have caught my heart,
They’ve danced throughout my soul,
They’ve taught me of this holy spark,
That links me to the Whole.

II. And I’ve never since now wandered
On a path so clear and bright,
Nor seen so many

The Skies of Winter

I. I love the skies of winter,
So honest, crisp, and clear,
And better yet are skies of June
Than other times of year.

II. For they reflect the sun and earth
With mastery, truth, and care,
Painting vivid strokes of red and gold<br
