“Invitation” by Sharon Rauenzahn

The garden is green, my love, won’t you ride out with me?
The garden is green, and the cool trees beckon.
Beyond the garden, the cool trees lift heavenward,
dapple the sunlight on moss and stone,
dapple the light on moss and scattered stone,
promise length of days and gentle summer nights.
Beyond the woods, the brook sings gaily,
beyond bright woods, the brook sings free,
singing soft love while the cool trees beckon,
scattering sunlight that clings to my skin.
The garden is green and the woods are green,
are green with love, and the woods are waiting.
The garden is green, and the cool trees beckon.
Won’t you ride out with me?
