The Magical World of Trees

It is a mighty warrior's ship
With masts that reach to the sky.
Its vast sails unfurl
Whisking us away to far away lands.

It is a great castle
With many rooms and a moat
Filled with man-eating alligators and hungry piranha
Waiting to devour anyone who dares harm us.

We're in the depths of the jungle.
Look there!  A ferocious tiger lounging in the sun.
Colorful birds and curious apes sing the song of the wild
As huge, monstrous bugs stroll casually along.

It is a ladder to heaven.
Each step leading us closer
To the clouds and the pearly gate
Where we might speak to St. Peter himself.

It is a hiding place
Where we might go
To think and read
Or just get away from the world.

These wonderful places
Are in our mind's eye.
The places we would go as children
In the magical world of trees.
