shades of green

shades of green
by bodhi


the sun is setting low
in a violet sky
out beyond the ridgetop

see the purple bloom
by the side of the road
wrapped in shades of green


hear the waters fall
in a gentle prayer
to the valley from the ridgetop

feel her tenderness
as she calls your name
wrapped in shades of green


i’ve dreamed so long of this moment
when the door would open onto
visions of beauty
wrapped in shades of green
wrapped in shades of green


if there is a god
i believe today
out along the ridgetop
for the sun is warm
all upon the earth
wrapped in shades of green

i’ve dreamed so long of this moment
when the door would open onto
visions of beauty
wrapped in shades of green
wrapped in shades of green
wrapped in shades of green...
