Mother of the Woods (The Beech)

Chorus
I am Mother of the Earth
I am Mother of the Sea
I am Mother of the Air
Come to Me
I am Mother of the Fire
And for all eternity
I am Mother of the Woods

Verse 1
Relax in the shade of my towering form
I am copper in my beauty
river purple in my robes
some call me common sometimes
I am hedgerow I am tree
I am Mother of the Woods
Come to Me

Chorus
I am Mother of the Earth
I am Mother of the Sea
I am Mother of the Air
Come to Me
I am Mother of the Fire
And for all eternity
I am Mother of the Woods

Verse 2
unfettered I move forward to a future unknown
I am slender in the winter
glowing metal in the grey
I’ve confidence and tolerance
if seeking sympathy
I am Mother of the Woods
Come to Me

Chorus
I am Mother of the Earth
I am Mother of the Sea
I am Mother of the Air
Come to Me
I am Mother of the Fire
And for all eternity
I am Mother of the Woods

Verse 3
your freshly cut love lines distort over time
will love blossom as the years pass
or fall at autumn’s will
will you lean against me praying
for the strength that sets you free
I am Mother of the Woods
Come to Me

Chorus
I am Mother of the Earth
I am Mother of the Sea
I am Mother of the Air
Come to Me
I am Mother of the Fire
And for all eternity
I am Mother of the Woods

Verse 4
thin slices of my body becoming your page
from the first book to the last book
wisdom safe within my soul
and my message lasts forever
you can never silence me
I am Mother of the Woods
Come to Me 
Come to Me
Come to Me
Come to Me
Come to Me

Chorus
I am Mother of the Earth
I am Mother of the Sea
I am Mother of the Air
Come to Me
I am Mother of the Fire
And for all eternity
I am Mother of the Woods

I am Mother of the Earth
I am Mother of the Sea
I am Mother of the Air
Come to Me
I am Mother of the Fire
And for all eternity
I am Mother of the Woods
