Call to the Forest Spirits

Surrounded by the forest's trees,
I am surrounded by the spirits of the forest.
I sit here, on the needles and leaves,
and spread my arms in greeting.
Come to me, if you wish;
I hope for your coming.
I wait here for you, hoping to see you.
And if you do not come,
I will still leave these gifts for you,
for my hands are not closed.
My hands are open in generosity toward you,
they are extended in friendship toward you.
