Nature’s Song

Jul 21, 2023

We recently received a request from a guest who hoped to have a pondside lodging room during her stay so that she could hear the frogs/toads in the evening. The “song” of these animals are soothing to her and she really enjoys this part of her retreat experience! Do you enjoy the sounds of nature in the summer? What soothes you?


Earth mother teach me of my kin,prayer, nature

Of Hawk and dove and flower,

Of blinding sunlight, shady knoll,

desert wind and morning showers.

Teach me every language of

the creatures that sing to me,

That I may count the cadence of

Infinite lessons in harmony.
