By the Crimson Tree

By the crimson tree we are free to dance
On hallowed ground with joyous sound
Round and round on life’s new mound
Till we fall with laughter after first light
Of night when we rest beneath bowers
That tower above our heads as we make
Our beds for peaceful sleep ever so deep
Beneath crimson tree where we are free
On hallowed ground with joyous sound
Together as one with new life just begun
