Oh, wise creatures of the forest

your’re hurt

but it isn’t seen

you don’t scream

you don’t bleed

you must silently take

what you get

 

The heart of your home

still beating

alive, breath in

breath out

birds voices are louder here

echoes through moist and swamp

invisible in huge old trees

 

You, wise creatures of the forest

patrol

for health and for life

do you moan

do you feel

that they rape their own home

take your life?

 

Over their roots we walk

-forest folk-

above the swampy ground,

pulsating veins are covered in moss.

 

Oh, wise creatures of the forest

don’t leave

some day you will heal

when we give

you a chance

when we’ll finally change

you will heal.

 

Dead wood alive,

travelling ants,

life in smallest holes,

aliens spread in autumn colours.

 

Oh, wise creatures of the forest

I beg

be stronger than them,

I will stay,

I will hope

until the last of days

by your side.
