Doe In The Spring Greens ...

who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief …
For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.”

Doe In The Spring Snow ...




"Born free, as free as the wind blows
As free as the grass grows
Born free to follow your heart ...
Live free and beauty surrounds you ...
Stay free, where no walls divide you ...
Born free, and life is worth living
But only worth living
'Cause you're born free."
