Softly the snow falls to cover the quiet land;
Beauty awakens and invites us to understand.
The wisdom of the universe speaks to us all:
A white blanket appears: we hear the earth call
Not with our ears do we hear the universe say
Things that would instruct us along life's way.
But with the ears of our heart, we are able to hear:
The voice of creation so simple, so clear.
All the writings in books and speeches we hear,
Are but shadows of the wealth we have so very near.
In the trees and the plants, in creatures everywhere
The wisdom of the Eternal is always ours to share.
