Natural Rhythm

When I listen to the earth ‘neath my feet
I hear the echo of an ancient time
Of lives before I came to write in rhyme
The call of nature’s spiritual beat
Upon the shore as the day and night meet
Amid the breaking of the salty waves
I feel it; the rhythm that my soul craves
The call of nature’s spiritual beat
At nightfall as the air cools in retreat
Again the ways of old begin anew
As fresh as any early morning dew
The call of nature’s spiritual beat
A Pagan born; in this I am complete
The call of nature’s spiritual beat
