The peace of the green trees be ours and calm our thoughts tonight; The song of Creation bring harmony and help our minds to rest. Industrious insects garden our world, as birds bring an offering of music; the streams bring the waters of life, and a woodland symphony is born! Creatures large and small have their being in this cathedral canopied by trees. O Lord most High, O Lord most holy, thank you for this place. The joy of blue skies overwhelms us! Softness of raindrops caress our heads. Clouds of gentleness soothe our days, and may wholeness be our portion. (c) Richard Starling, 2021.
