Forest

A Poem By Kay J Fields // 10/16/2009

 

Stand tall forest
Stand tall trees
Hide me in your shadows
Hold me in you peace
Stretch out your branches
Stretch out your leaves
Unfold your springtime blooms
Birds refuge in your rooms
Let me touch your bark
Listen to the singing lark
Feel the wildfire dig in deep
Hold on until the last flames sleep
Finger the wind with your arms
Produce good crop for poorer farms
Hold a snowflake in winter cold
Sleep unnoticed with young and old
Wake again once spring returns
All the forest, for summer, yearns
As your leaves turn older brown
And at last fall from your crown
Then the fall steals away your green
But inside runs, an emerald stream
Life beats for ages in your heart
Even when the old dies a new life will start
Stand tall
Stand long
Stand erect
Stand strong
Stand tall forest
Stand tall trees
Hide me in our shadows
Hold me in your peace

 Lovely.  I love trees and the woods.

"Sleep unnoticed with young and old"... Lovely.  Just lovely.

Brother: Your character should drive a motorcycle.
Me: He can't. He's in the wilderness.
Brother: Then make it a four-wheel-drive motorcycle!
