Assurance - Poem by Barry Middleton

those days the forest knew my mood
protecting me in time of need

I offered fire to warm the night
and prayed to forest gods and stars

the wind that stirred the canopy
was like a midnight symphony

and sleep was like a lover's touch
whose kiss could banish all my fears
