Lady of the Wood


Hi, Lady of the Wood
I bow, or at least I should
Your quiet waters reflect
The evergreens a greenish blue
But what is that to you?

The deciduous along your banks
Are reflected too
In all their summer glory

Your animal trails lead everywhere
Waiting for trekkers to come
from far and near
Looking for flora and fauna
better than any man made sauna

For rest and relaxation
Peace of mind
Reflection on the goodness of
the earth at its best
God's care in natural habitat

But, oh, Oh Lady of the Wood
I hear a mosquito near!

Lady of the Wood (c)2002 Quentin Clingerman
