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.
