I値l lay me down
in a field of clover.
I値l weave a cover from the flowers,
use my hound dog for a pillow.
I値l watch the clouds go by
and dream of you
from underneath this here willow.

(sorry my friend - couldn't resist...)

"I値l lay me down
in a field of clover.
I値l weave a cover from the flowers,
use my hound dog for a pillow.
I値l watch the clouds go by
and dream of you
from underneath this here willow."

And I, alive with the skies,
the land , the animals,
will unknowingly come upon you,
and we, as one, shall commune
with nature in a way free . . .
from all but the presence
of God.



Very nice piece, my friend...
much enjoyed,

j.

Way cool Jimmy!
I thought my version needed a little something more. Apparently I was right! Thank you! ~L

I missed your comment! I'm glad you had as much fun reading as I had writing. ~L
