The Sleepy Woods

The brook glideth shadowy and green,
White shimmering gown of soft petals;
Upon the cold bosom lay,
The lilies of the wooded valley.

No path doth go, no feet doth tread,
No breaketh the mossy silk of floor.
No wind shall howl its dreary moan,
But gentle it lingers over the haze.
And bloweth softly through the leaves,
Hung low in the sleepy woods.

    You personified the wind of the sleepy woods so gracefully, Guati. This pristine untouched haven is a splendid place to sit and spectate. Appreciated this write. I feel like going on a hike now. ha ha. Love, Gwendolen

    After my last post had to write this to negate that effect... wish for a world where there's only 'PEACE' and 'LOVE'!!
