On a Mountain Stream

On a Mountain Stream

Blue green water coursing
Beating, boulders, bumping
Down mountain canyon steep,
O water, giver of lives,
Liquid mother and

You who dwell within
Come to me in joy of chase,
Where our worlds blend in
Sun dappled current swift,
Fir and Spruce our verdant witness

Eagle, osprey, little dipper bird
And you, trout, we are as one
In harmony forever
As it was always meant to be
Per omnia saecula saeculorum
