MAGIC FOREST BAPTISM
THE CREED OF THE WOOD
by Katharine Bates
A whiff of forest scent, balsam and fern,
Won from dreary mood my heart's return,
From its discontent, joy's run-away,
To the sweet, wise wood and the laughing day.
Simple as dew and gleam is the creed of the wood!
The Beautiful gave us life, and life is good.
Be the world but a dream, let the world go shod
With peace, not strife, for the Dreamer is God.
