Oil Paintings of Florida

Then, we will Know

When the towering cypress trees fall down into the clear blue waters
When the storm clouds swept away those last few rain drops
When the songs of the great horned owls turns still
When the turtles no longer slide down into the clear blue waters and the wake of the foam in the twilight no longer shapes the sounds of our wandering river.
Then, we will know
Into the deep blue shadows and down the rocky shoals
Then, we will know
We turn to the place, To the land that has warned us, to the waters that have taught us.
Long ago , long ago
Together, we stay strong as we thirst in our long lost wandering world.
Yet still, when the towering cypress trees fall down into the clear blue waters
When that storm cloud swept away those last few rain drops and no longer formed the twilight, no longer shaped the sound of our wandering river.
then ,we will know
