Misting the woods where we’ve pitched camp,
rain becomes a mischievous scamp,
large drops slide from heavy branched pines,
wrens fill birch dens that clouds assign, 
the tent leans and our clothes are damp.

Love, there is the warmth of our lamp,
so as we drowse let peace enstamp,
almost lulled by nature’s design 
misting the woods.

Soon, we will the afternoon clamp,
don our slickers, down pathways tramp,
for now, let long daydreams entwine,
the world is kissed while lips align,
this shower of sighs has your vamp
misting the woods.

    Hi Cyndi, I read this poem and really enjoyed it. I was struck by your use of the words "don our slickers" and the use of the word "tramp", these are common terms used in New Zealand. Have you been there in your travels? Great poem. Lee

    Congratulations on your win in my "Raindrops Falling" contest Cyndi. I had a very hard time judging this contest as most of the poems were so well written. Thank you for supporting my contest. Love, Carol

    Entrancing foray into the woods. I like the natural scenery artfully ensconced in the first stanza.

    Wonderful imagery of the woods you paint here in your poem Cyndi. Makes one long for a trip in the lap of nature. Many thanks for you kind comments, your fav and the suggestion of changing the word 'entire' for my poem 'Autumn's splendorous beauty'. I agree with you and edited it. Will try to catch up later again.
