A Place Down Yonder

Take me to a place down yonder

Where there are endless fields

And yellow daffodils

Where butterflies play

And mantises pray

Where the sun dares shine

Despite the deliberately blind


Take me to a place where I can wander


Where there is no limit

To the time of day

And one needs not worry

What next to say

Extend your hand and lead me

And with your knowledge feed me

For wisdom knows no bounds

Where only nature surrounds


Enliven my spirit, enrich my soul

Encompass my life as one big whole

Take me where no being has gone before

Take me where there is always an open door


Take me to the other side of the rainbow

Then set me free to go

Where everything is as it first will seem

Where one may dream the impossible dream


Take me to a place down yonder

Where Solitude is not labeled squander

Where the meadows are green

And the air is clean

Where joy knows no barrier

And man knows no fear

Where the water is crystal clear

Where love overflows

And the wind gently blows


Where a little blue jay will land on my arm

And when I move to touch it

Will not fly away with alarm


Where sadness is never felt

And only tears of happiness are shed

Where no one has heard of a broken heart

Where there is no need for a brand new start


Take me to a place down yonder

A place you know only too well

And when you take me there.. leave me

Where nature will never deceive me
