    Crows peck at the damp ground -
    The mountain air is thick with fog.
    Barely hearing the Toad’s chirping
    Above the shrill song of a Gray Tree Frog -
    It’s good to be in a wild green place
    far away from the tainted town.
    I’d rather share songs with a Katydid
    then to shout or be shouted down.

    The town demands obedience before respect -
    Something I just couldn’t freely give.
    If you change one’s thinking
    then you can tell one how to live.
    Better to howl with the pack
    then bleating with someone’s flock -
    Roaming beyond fenced pastures.
    Never waking to the crowing cock.

    Come frolic with me all through the day
    into Night under a silver moon.
    Take a chance and come this way -
    Should I expect your visit soon ?

    Take my hand and walk with me,
    a bed of soft meadow grass we’ll share.
    I’ll make you wild and set you free
    from your every little care.

    In passionate bliss I taste your lips,
    into the West the Sun has sunk.
    In a sweet embrace time slowly slips
    and you’ll look even lovelier once I’m drunk.

    The Kestrel flitting through your parade,
    not at all inspired and unafraid.
    A shaded figure moving beyond your fence
    in the shadowy tangle, dark and dense.
    Call of the wild, piercing and uncontained,
    the feeling of freedom drives you insane.
    Something growling beyond your sight,
    or a passing stranger in your dreams at night.
    Your fence cannot shut out such wild cries -
    so plug your ears and believe in lies.
    On short borrowed time, you make your bed,
    soon to join other spirits of the dead.
