Bewitching

A magic forest
   Where chipmunks slide down moon beams
       And squeal with delight

Oh listen! You'll hear
    robins splash their tiny feet
        in pools of dewdrops

Like laughing children
    Crickets are playing their harps
        And dancing with joy

 Sweet songs at bedtime
   Moss covered carpets, soften
       the music for sleep

Hushed now, cadence of
   summer evening melody
      bewitching the dark

    Carrie, I feel like I jumped into the pages of a child's fairy tale book. Did you ever see the movie Enchanted? (feel like I even asked you this before) You remind me of the main character who makes the real world so delightful and enchanting by her beautiful outlook on life. Of course she is cartoon character turned real, but enough of that! Each verse a mesmerizing sound of nature during a summer's eve so magically expressed. Good luck! Love, Shar (going to send you soup mail).

    Carrie, best of luck in the contest, all the esentials are here to win. It would be deserving for all your skill and power to weave the word from imagination or fantasy that we cannot tell where lies the border between the real and the virtual. This is a sweet, musical write and a fun accomplishment to read.
