Landscape’s calling

landscape’s calling and I’m here to answer
walking to the trail of serenity
landscape’s calling and I’m here to answer

feeling the sand in my toes and I’m free
the sound of the water as it hits rocks
walking to the trail of serenity

thousand of tree swallows, all in their flocks
American robins and other birds
the sound of the water as it hits rocks

enjoying all these then I go homewards
being part of nature is always fun
American robins and other birds

sky is blue, clouds are white and a bright sun
heaven on earth, what I always wanted
being part of nature is always fun

nature around us, life is so splendid
landscape’s calling and I’m here to answer
heaven on earth, what I always wanted
landscape’s calling and I’m here to answer*
