Beside a stream of crystal; its laughter sings to me.
Wild salmon rejoice in the current, free to swim naturally.
No dam to impede them as they pursue what nature has decreed.
Ancient willow shades with gnarled, hanging boughs
that touch the waters ripples, dancing with rhythm endowed.
No sound of man's entanglements enters this reverent stand,
only the sounds of the natural; only the song of the land.
Tomorrow will bring reality, but tonight I walk my dream.
