Well I go by the name Shaelam Relagh
I like to sleep under the stars
I carry no coins and wear no shoes
The river provides me with my food
Now I'm going to tell you what I saw
One morning when the day began to dawn
The sky was churned and twisted dark and mean
The wind made swaying fools of the trees
It whipped the water made it hiss and sting
Sent the birds as kites without the string
Then when the biggest tree bent like a birch
I felt a cruel wrenching of the earth
It fell across that river deep and wide
Its highest branches on the other side

And the first thought on my mind
Was I will cross that fallen pine
And I will leave this life I’ve made
Start it all over again

Well I only got a little way along
When something up ahead made me stop
Not only had that tree began to move
A giant bear was running for me too
I had no time to run I just lay flat
Waited for that bear to break my back
But all I felt was something very small
Run across my body that was all
And when I finally opened up my eyes
The tree had left the riverbank behind
