Do you remember long ago

Standing rocking to and fro

Allowing water to trickle down

To the toes from your crown

Holding a cup of precious water

Like it was earth’s living daughter

Feeling one with the earth

Remembering your true birth

As roots grow down to the ground

So you can make your own sound

And not letting the wilting roses

Suck your life like vacuum hoses

Drink the water and let it flow

So you may long and tall roots grow.
