McKean County

Music in the sky, the hills—
clouds make music too.
Keep listening. There’s music
everywhere—rivers, lakes,
a forest, a clearing. There’s
nothing that’s not music.

Can you hear the wild?
Open yourself to everything
underneath. There’s
nothing that’s not music—
the dirt, the rocks,
your history on earth.
