Into the Woods

Through the tree tops
Beautiful crescent Moon
Venus just above her
The woods are so dark
Every step is an adventure
Up the ladder, into my tree stand
Glad I found it
The sky is dark
But for the stars so bright
Silence, but for a brook nearby
Soon I'll hear birds
A couple at first
Then an orchestra
I love this special place
This place of peace
