A Forest Without Trees

There were no trees in the forest
But you know, they were not missed
I know that’s hard to understand
It can’t be a forest, you’ll insist

But you see, it’s a petrified forest
With only desert vegetation
Yes, to see a normal forest
You have to use you imagination

Lovely flowers you will see
Miles and miles across the land
It has its own beauty amazingly
Visitors think that it’s quite grand

The buildings too are unique
I’m sure you would be amazed
The structure is made of adobe
Folks just simply gaze and gaze

It’s so fun to experience the unusual
Out in nature with the birds and bees
You can go where I went and enjoy
A forest without trees!
