The Soul of a Tree

I sing of the soul, of the soul of a tree,
I sing of the soul, of the soul of a tree,
as cool and forgiving as night after sun,
when the notes of the sparrow are secret, (hush) unsung.

The soul of a tree, the soul of a tree
sings an ancient, ancient song.

The soul of a tree is the deepest place,
where the seedling takes hold, where the rootwater waits,
where the sky sleeps for the night, in a branch-bend,
in the shade of a leaf-tip, seeking wisdom in bark.

The soul of a tree, the soul of a tree
sings an ancient, ancient song. Ah…

I sing of the soul, of the soul of a tree,
I sing of the soul, of the soul of a tree,
as cool and forgiving as night after sun,
when the notes of the sparrow are secret, (hush) unsung.

"Lyrical and lovely. I programmed this for a regional honor choir, and the students LOVED it: the beautiful lines that sit well in the voice, thoughtful cluster chords, and a text that sparks good conversation."
