and if you are lonely

and if you are lonely
do not think
that you have no one

the stars above
say your name
and the wind limps with you

the river
pastes a song
on the door of snow

with the robins
and chickadees
meanwhile the blue jay

bursts out in delphinium bloom
in the fir
sing what you can

to keep yourself accompanied
but understand the land
envelopes thee

and we accompany you
wherever you go
you are never alone
