songs from the woods


            walking silently with the spirits of the woods 
             the stunning acquaintance of a snowy Owl
             Hearing songs from many around yet not seen or found
           
             careful your crossing a coral snake or copperhead
             preparing to wave all rights to see beauty to live
             one piercing bite from the red and yellow snake 
             deadly shy snake sudden death may await your fate

             stillness and earth is touched with Cherokee blood 
             many tribes with sage and fires dances the brave
             you see the wild mustangs ride and deer in mind
             the squirrels the rabbits and wolves you hear
 
              the woods once a many land to explore
              becomes extinct with Mans desire to build more
              how much can we take before it is gone forever

              entered  " in the woods contest "

    this one touched me partly because of its lesson, partly because my grandson is native American indian and he and I love to walk along nature...I hope we stop taking from the land so we have beauty around us to admire...great poem, congrats :)

    Thank-you so much for this inspiration , I felt myself walking in the woods in Hot Springs , I ran into a white Owl on Thanksgiving day , it was when my Family was separated , and my brother & I had No Family, No Turkey dinner , my Mom was absent at the time as was my Father . I remember being sad , walking through " Diamondhead " A National Park we lived at , there the white Owl was , as if it knew I was alone , like a Indian Ancestor ~ Thank you again , I am honored. Love ,Yvette

    Yvette, I know this is a fine entry for the woods contest.. I truly love this one. well...I don't like the thought of them creepy snakes slithering the woods..LOL.. however I wish, men could back off and leave the beauty of nature alone. This has been a very good poem with imagery... always~ Linda

    I agree - we are decimating the natural world. We are the stewards of this natural world and must fight to preserve it. Meaningful poem here! Peace & Love Matthew Anish
