she sings and moans she moves in waves she moves over frozen snow,

she howls she whips up mists from the snow she froze.

 

she howls over frozen snow the songs she sings are wild at the poles she waits and dances, 

a shriek a roar flows out along with streaming twists of light from stars

 

she moans she softly cries she croons, until she screams she screams her song all who listen hear it

between the night and snow;

she mixes the night with the snow,

she calms she stills her rage to rage again

 

she storms she makes her clouds, in one sky, here, so that another sky may clear

by gentle breeze or hurricane she flies unseen

by land by sea she flies unseen

 

she rests and breathes in jungle steams, she rests and breathes in snowy mountain peaks she froze

all that lives she sees

in valleys green she whirls, in plains she sometimes gently strokes her earth,

by light by dark she brings the rain

 

alone but not alone she sings and works and waits she waits and moves and tends her earth

she longs to touch her silent moon she longs to feel the sun.

 

she moves she waits she tends her earth between all things  

alone but not alone, she sings.
