POEM: Hymns to the Forest God #26

O Forest God, 

my head is empty, 

my heart is heavy, 

my hands are weak.

Sometimes I come to you

with nothing but my need

no gift to give

no credit but your kindness.

It is enough, you say.

The universe existed 

before you; it will continue 

after you. My forest is 

a place of refuge. Rest.
