Five Acre Woods

Five Acre Woods a magical spot
A remnant of our Past
I hope and pray with all my heart
That we can make it last

Seattle it is changing
Lake Forest Park is too
But Magic still abounds in here
Let's see what we can do

The wildlife does reside in here
We wait with baited breath 
Will this last vestige of our Past
Now face a certain death

In Nature we find refuge
From all that Life may bring
For it is true- right in our heart
We're part of Everything

So let's all link our hearts and minds
To see what we can do
The dearest Gift-what Nature brings
That's true for me and you

There is a Presence you will feel
Not in the daily rush
But in the beauty of the space
The lilting of a thrush

Jean Monce Bryant
