I am away from village and town
I am alone on the forest path!
There is none to pluck the flowers
Trees are of different colors!
In summer there are many springs
Woods are there for the winter!
Trees grow so near to the clouds.
For my hunger there are fruits!
So many rows of trees are here
Village and city life is a bore!
The list of animals is very long
Elephants appear to be strong!
I hear lovely songs from birds
And I see dances of leaves!
I learn lessons from the animals
I find peace in mountain caves!
Like a church there is a huge rock
Like a rope I see a thin snake!
Sun and moon are my bed lamps
I am happy in this forest camp!
