I walk on earth with a spring .
The birds around me spread their wings.
Green trees and grass meet my eyes.
Beneath the trees I can lie .
I walk alone to the river
To the opposite bank I cross over .
I wade in the water so cool and clear .
I wet my body and what I wear.
I walk slowly in the rain.
The rain does not fall in vain.
The plants , the grass , the brooks and me
We all drink in plenty .
I walk at dawn by the sea .
All the waves reach out to me.
Sea gulls fly by ; the sun appears
Cocks crow and birds' chirping sound so near .
I walk one evening by the streams .
Evening shadows , flickering beams .
I pray the day at its end.
I know I always have a friend .
