[I had to tease these words out, phrase by phrase, working around the "snippet view" restriction. I don't know if this poem is complete, or if I have the line breaks in the right place.]
I like it up here on these hillsides.
Air moving, skies rushing more near me.
Sometimes you have to breathe, in times like these.
Don't block out the fear she says.
Don't hold back the tears.
Takes energy, keep living these acts of faith
In times like these, like planting trees.
Planting trees, planting trees, it's an act of faith
Under a sky so wide,
Four, four women, working together on a hillside.
Under the moon, under the sun,
The work the women have always done.
Under the sun, under a gun,
Oh what a world these men have won.
My home is a green bell,
Let it ring with the love of women.
Hold out your hand, oh my sister, oh my love.
Energy makes, energy makes.
Energy makes it worth a go. ...
