The Silent Spring



I saw fields white with daisies when yellows on the broom

Where once flowed a river, a river that ran free



Won't you come into my garden, taste the honey on the rose

Sit down here beside me where weeping willows grow



Now we walk on lonely meadows and play on barren soil

We are fearful of the future we've now a silent spring



The circle carries onward like a road that never bends

And as the snow falls in the river, a moment white, then gone



Can't you see there is a rhythm, don't we know there is a plan

The natural world has chosen to heal our precious land



I saw fields white with daisies when yellows on the broom

Where once flowed a river, a river that ran free



We are fearful of the future we've now a silent spring,

We've now a silent spring

It's now a silent spring
