Sit with me, upon the mountain's edge;
Forget your trivial tasks "to-do,"
Reign in your far too busy mind,
And leave, for now, those things behind.
Take in the sights below,
Below these stunning skies;
Listen with your ears,
And listen with your eyes.
As the wind blows the leaves;
To the birds inside the trees.
As the animals roam and the river runs,
And to the rustling plants that bask in the sun.
Golden rays glint off of the lake,
Its surface as still as glass that could break;
Grasses sway in the whispering wind,
And the beauty here you'll never shake.
So finally, now, you've seen the sights..
Listen now, to the mountain heights;
The calming silence, the restful pace;
Relax here, with nature's grace.
