Give Me To Pine Shadows

oh give to me pine shadows
to guard me from the flames
that lap my flesh from tarmacadam
in the lands we’ve tamed
oh bury me in graven glades
away from other men
and let the forest comfort me
til’ autumn flies again
and decks the land in golden snows
to cool me when I sleep
but for now give me pine shadows
for dreams of woodlands deep
