A Walk In The Woods


As I wandered through the woods
I come upon a squirrel and asked
'Can you see me? '
The squirrel replied,
'I see the acorn that sustains me'

As I wandered through the woods
I came upon a mouse and asked
'Can you see me? '
The mouse replied,
'I see the seeds that fill me'

As I wandered through the woods
I came upon a mole and asked
'Can you see me? '
The mole replied,
'I see the ground that hides me'

As I wandered through the woods
I came upon a wolf and asked
'Can you see me? '
The wolf replied,
'I see the brush that shades me'

As I wandered through the woods
I came upon a deer and asked
'Can you see me? '
The deer replied,
'I see the meadow that cools me'

As I wandered through the woods
I came upon a turkey and asked
'Can you see me? '
The turkey replied,
'I see the vines that conceal me'

As I wandered through the woods
I came upon an owl and asked
'Can you see me? '
The owl replied,
'I see the moon that shines on me'

As I wandered through the woods
I came upon a eagle and asked
'Can you see me? '
The eagle replied,
'I see the air that lifts me'

As I wandered through the woods
I came upon a rabbit and asked
'Can you see me? '
The rabbit replied,
'I see the water that quenches me'

As I wandered through the woods
I came upon a man and asked
'Can you see me? '
The man did not reply
I asked the man,
'Can you hear me? '
The man did not reply
I asked the man,
'Can you feel me? '
The man did not reply
I reached out to touch the man
But the man was not there.

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
