The Lake

The Lake

The glowing dusk stands still

The world like an emerald
This place is heaven

The sun is shining its lights
On this sapphire kingdom
Beauty they call it

The air is silky smooth
The running ruby world above
Scatters across the day and night

The hair on my body stands still
This place has a sparkling sky
The silent world is alive
