CCC118: On Such a Lovely Warm Spring Day

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #118

Into the woods to play
On such a lovely warm spring day.
If at the Beech Tree I knock by three
The Woodland Mother lets me sit on her knee;
She’ll tell me tales of the woodland gnomes
Who beneath the woodland bank have made their homes;
Stories too of the woodland elf
Who tends the herbs that give us health.
And then to a sunny woodland dell
The whereabouts I shall not tell,
To stretch and laze throughout the day
And watch the fairies at their play.


Cos I love to have fun!

  4. Oh that is so lovely. It puts me in mind of my own childhood, although my friends were often gnomes that bore a resemblance to crawdads and fairies looked a lot like dragon flies. I grew up in Southern California with weekend trips to lakes and reservoirs. *insert nostalgic sigh*
