The Woods Watchman - Poem by Nicole GravellPellerino

He often walked the woods
in fair or windy weather
but, upon this plain he strolls no more
except across my memory

I never knew his name,
and can't recall his face
a mysterious man to me, a tragedy we wall saw coming
But all the same, I thought he would stay

Now I have lost him to the woods
footsteps faded in the mud
If only the winds would return him again
so, he might stand by me once again
