The chorus of the peep-toads

Lulls me to sleep, and

The morning birdsong

Awakens me.

I bathe in

The summer rain, and

I feast on

The wild berries.

I dance to

The music of

Footsteps and gentle whispers, and

I adorn myself

With crowns of


This land has

Given birth to me, and

Continues to cradle me

In Her arms.

A poem celebrating my homeland, where I was born and raised. Virginia is truly for lovers.
