Family Camp - Poem by Donald R Wolff JR

The sound of wolves sing through the night with howling songs of love
Loons that nest near the water's edge also sing along
Bluegill swim to a rhythmic tune played by cricket harmony
As fireflies light up the night above the silent stream

Deep in the woods there is a roar that chills us to the bone
The children cry for mom and dad to take them both back home
Our camping guide saves the day with a story of the roar
It made the children laugh to hear that sleeping bears can snore

Toasted marshmallows fill the air, inviting with a smell
Where campers gather around the fire with their ghostly tales to tell
Tommy scared his little sister with a beetle bug
Because Sister made Tommy a drink mostly made of mud

Welcomed toads come to the light to feast upon the pests
We laughed at Joe, who fell asleep with one toad on his chest
The family time we spend together with many of our friends
Are memories to forever treasure, and talk about again
