Ants and crawly things

Let us venture through the trees

heading out to hill and glen.

To feel the warming sun and breeze

on our skin and through our hair.

There we could go exploring

or merely run and play.

Until we both get winded

then head back to the forest again.

There we might just settle in

where we’ll rest on grass and leaves.

That’s if the ants and crawly things

will give us, a reprieve.

Perhaps they could go visiting

until we go away,

I don’t mean leaving permanently,

just maybe for today.      Hansi Riley

  1. You sound like you know the ins and outs of nature. It’s not all blue skies, but even with the bugs, it’s still better than being inside all day. 🙂 Great poem, very realistic.
