Where I'll Be Found
The huge oak tree at the water's side,
The river flowing deep and wide,
The moon's soft shadows on the ground,
This is the place where I'll be found.
I love this natural, wooded scene
Where everything is so serene.
My mind is filled with happiness,
I know I'll never like it less.
It was created for you and me
To go and enjoy every tree;
All the animals, plants and rocks
Nature doesn't have any locks.
