Head To Toe

Oh, how I love to wander
Along the sylvan trail
Amid a growth of chestnut
I breathe the woodsy air
Across the unbroken plain
Are two amazing pools
Lined with tufts of cattails
In the deepest darkest hues
I find myself enchanted
As I linger near the top
As down below the precipice
Is a sight that makes me stop
A thrill that sends me spinning
Sends tingles to my toes
For, spread upon the landing
Is the most amazing rose
With petals soft as snowflakes
A perfect flaming glow
That fills me with such longing
That makes my passion grow
And out beyond this treasure
Is a dip and sculpted slide
That leads down to a cavern
That I yearn to see inside
I’m sure there is adventure
Stitched beneath the seams
In hues of golden honey
And smooth as whipping cream
Just like a childhood playground
Such games there are in store
Along the hills and valleys
There’s so much to explore
I’ll glide across the ripples
Before I stop to rest
Then skim across the flatland
To frolic in the nest
There’s trees as tall as mountains
They’re sheathed in wiry grass
I’ll meander to the bend
Along the mountain pass
Then onward to the footing
I’ll play among the stones
Then start a sweet ascension
And explore my way back home
