Come walk with me through shady trees…
Let’s play with sunlight, shadow, and breeze…
Come walk, play, and be!
Come laugh with me ‘neath verdant tree…
Let sense taste, hear, smell, and see…
Come laugh, sense, and be!
Come love with me among the trees…
And feel our love for all that is…
Come love, and feel…and be!
