The beauty of the trees, the softness of the air
The fragrance of the grass, speak to me.
The summit of the mountain, the thunder in the sky
The rhythm of the sea, speak to me.
The faintness of the stars, of the morning
The dewdrop on the flower, speak to me.
The strength of the fire, the taste of the salmon
The trail of the sun, speak to me.
And my heart soars.
