The Happy Forrest

Whilst I was walking through the country
I came upon the strangest path
It took me to a little Forrest
where all the plants and trees could laugh

At one tree I stopped and sat 
Then asked "What are you laughing at?"
The tree replied with greatest glee
"Because i am a happy tree.."

"The air is clear, 
 The sky is blue,
does that not make you happy too?"
I stopped and thought for just a while
and as I thought I came to smile
Our earth is here to give us pleasure
so all the good things we should treasure.

And as I laughed there, with the trees
upon my face i felt a breeze
Then suddenly it all was gone.
No laughing trees
Not even one.

Written by me aged 13...

    Very refreshing but you have that 'pull the the rug from under the feet' streak.
