Pine Mountain Prayer

This was inspired by a friend's sharing of a special place for him and upon research, learned of how many people call this dear mountain their home.

 

Pine Mountain Prayer 

Won’t you take a roam with me 

Wander Laurel Branch Holler 

There’s so much to see 

Oaks have grown even taller 

Over forty of my years 

I have walked this mountain land 

When the sunny season veer 

Holly and mistletoe in hand 

Between seasons fall and spring 

There’s a bit of magic in the air 

What a gift that she brings 

With her Pine Mountain prayer 

Pine Mountain has a prayer 

She whispers in your ear 

Everytime I go wander there 

There’s something new to hear 

Some days I read the gospel 

Some eves I stare for stars 

Far away and thoughtful 

On this mountain side of ours 

Cardinals and wrens watch if 

A passerby should toil 

A pine sprung from a cliff 

Adorned with ribbons, shells, tin foil 

Pine Mountain’s in my soul 

As I go about my day, 

Praises to extol 

So blessed in everyway 

Pine Mountain has a prayer 

She whispers in your ear 

Everytime I go wander there 

There’s something new to hear 

This prayer of Pine Mountain 

Carries me everywhere 

No matter the place I’m in 

I have my Pine Mountain prayer
