heron in the water,
won't you come and stay for a while?
no, you say?
why don't you come and sit around the fire?
but, no, no, no,
because the heron lives by the water's edge,
a home formed by river banks
and outstretched trees, reaching out to the crested waves.
a great blue heron,
mighty and tall,
you always told me they rule them all.
you always said, you always said
i was a heron at heart,
but now, I think you realize,
when the dawn comes
i'll join the heron in the great blue sea.
