First the Vikings came with myth and sword

Then the church with their one book and cross

Then the soviets with a promise of freedom

But still feet trailed the woodland moss

Then the fears of military grids became home

And faith and truth was trapped under a glass dome

…but many still heartful stand

Here is to the people of the land!

With forests in mind

Flowers in heart

Sunshine in soul and eyes

Mushrooms in hand

And roots a foot.
