The Girl by the Stream

Painting of a girl by a stream, surrounded by orbs, by Gilbert Williams

Every morning and
every evening, a girl
sat by a stream that
ran through an
ancient forest.

Alone she came,
morning and evening,
to listen to the quiet
and hear the murmur
of her far-off dreams.

And the girl was
the soul of the forest,
and the stream was
the soul of the girl.

The heavenly trees,
kindest of friends,
whispered to the girl
beneath hovering wings.

Cool water glided over
bare feet as she
wrote what would be in
her radiant world of
tomorrows and dreams.

The trees and the water
taught her the way.
In the quiet of the forest,
she found her way.

Michael James Fitzgerald
