Trip Through The Woods


In the whispering woods,

the willow trees swayed.

The acorns fell silently,

But I was still afraid.


While the animals rest,

the wind begins to swirl.

I called for a friend,


As my toes began to curl.

Darkness fell quickly,

the moon hid it's light.

I heard something crunching,

and ran out of sight!!!!!

I saw light approaching,

It seemed so bright.

I knew it was the Sun,


But was only a flashlight!

Dad came to rescue me,

I felt such relief.


Because he had a Diet Coke,

and a slice of roast beef!
