In the Quiet of These Hours
It’s not too late to start a garden
it’s not too late to plant some trees
it’s not too late for solar power
or water catchment, or keeping bees.
It’s not too late to think of others
it’s not too late to learn to cook
it’s not too late to learn a language
or read, or even write a book.
It’s not too late unless we give up
it’s not too late to turn around
in the quiet of these hours
can be where tomorrow’s found.
Are you happy and contented
with this world that you can see
if you’re not then switch the power
walk outside and plant a tree.
It’s exactly what we’re missing
a real connection with the earth
let the quiet of these hours
be humanity’s rebirth
