Meadows rich with green grass, little wild flowers softly sway,
On a small wind drifting gently past on this late summer’s day,

Wild Flowers

Meadows are rich with green grass, little wild flowers softly sway,
On a very small wind drifting gently past on this late summer’s day,
You know I walked these very same fields both as a man and boy,
Even after many years it still catches me unawares
its beauty still gives me joy.

Looking Hard



When looking hard there’s a boy running swiftly over a grass covered glade,
I remember it well, like it was yesterday, just like watching a film being made,
Jumping grey logs fallen fences and dodging holes, minding rusty barbed wire,
Out of breath going up hills, slowing down to my catch my breath
stopping for a look as I got higher.

Running with the Wind



Then off again running with the wind in my hair running as fast as I could,
Back down the hill over the other side, down grassy banks and into a wood,
Wish I could do that now, maybe I can but only in an old mans wildest dream,
Arms stretched out like a soaring bird then my pumps kicked off
when I got to the stream.

Cool Stream



Dipping my hot feet in a clear cool stream splashing water on my hair,
Time’s passed so fast, I don’t know, it’s just gone anyway, it’s not there,
Seems one minute you have all the time in all the world, then one day
You just turn around for a second, it’s used up you're an old man
it’s all gone away.
