Old-Growth Forests and Animals

" By the sacred grove, where the waters flow, we will come and go, in the forest.

In the summer rain, we will meet again. We will learn the code of the ancient ones, in the forest.

By the waterfall, I will hold you in my arms. We will meet again by the leafy glade, in the shade of the forest.

. . . By the ancient roads, I will take you home to the forest.

. . . We will surely roam, down by the ancient roads."
