TUOLUMNE MEADOWS

Once upon some secluded Meadows Fair, My Love and I did lie.

We shed our clothes with joyful abandon

We felt the soft, grassy earth upon our skin,

And gazed at the clear blue sky.

Once upon these lovely Meadows, My love and I did play.

We picked a bouquet of wild flowers,

And were intoxicated as a dozen fragrances came our way.

We romped like children in our Magnificent Meadows for hours

Once upon our Charming Meadows, my Love and I did celebrate.

So much was there to enjoy and admire;

A tiny brook with a friendly little garter snake,

A Redwood Forest to one side that set our hearts on fire!

Once upon our Heavenly Meadows, My Love and I did meditate.

We were in a Garden of Eden that was something wonderful to see.

In those Beautiful Meadows it was our superb Fate,

To be a man and a woman in Love—Naked, Unashamed, and Free.
