100 acre wood

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

There are woods that seem, somehow, magical.

Olden, dappled places where there is an interval

between the world we know and the one that we imagine.

Groves of white birches interspersed amongst olden oaks and tall pines.

Ferns and Solomon's seal delicate underfoot.

One can see that others have seen and felt the same delight

A never-never land where glad and joyful youth

cannot see that the structures they are building today

use timber from trees that their grandparents planted

Trunks that once were as young as they who build the bridges are now.

There is a silence almost reverent in these woods.

Golden beams of sunlight filter through the tree tops

creating the effect of a silken scarf

Everything bathed in chartreuse and emerald.
