Song Length 1:25 Genre World - General
Language Other


Quietly the forest settled around the lake to sleep,
and the wind stopped for a moment to rest,
and wood doves waited with their dusky
glowing song - the one that sends a shiver through ones core.

This is a moment of perfect contentment
when senses can rest in illuminated groves,
and one doesn't worry about time or things but rather
allows days and time to be just moments.
