The desert song


Listen carefully.

Old earth, old ground.

Look like rock and soil only.

The desert song is hard to hear.

You must quiet the mind, relax the heart and open your eyes.

The desert song.

Low and sweet. Tell us.

Listen, pay attention.

The desert plants can grow here and

Rrom for polite men and women who love the earth, the water and the sky.
