Lily's Poem

The Forest of Dean

The forest full of trees the height of giants,
Blocking anyway of communication,
From the intoxication of the busy city life.
The seasonal breeze drifts by,
As you wonder down the angelic nature trails,
With the seasonal presence passing you by,
The sounds of nature's chorus,
Soothing the sould and the distant noises,
Of friends and families,
Enjoying their day,
The lights from the every glowing orb in the sky,
Create little pools of crystals on the floor through the trees.
