Spring House Refuge
She arrived weary and weak
Desperate for a place to rest.
The cool of the forest a welcome respite
From the long, hot, dusty trail.
Thirsty, she drank
of the clear, cold spring
The Wise Woman of the forest spoke.
"My dear, you need change.
The way forward is through your pain.
Your darkest hours are over now.
See the light,
Feel the breeze,
Taste the clear, refreshing spring.
Walking through the worst
Gives you the Key
To fly free."
