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.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.
