Penelope’s Poems

The Woods

The Woods

Sylvan creatures whispering by

Yet out of sight from human eye

Enrich this dusk filled leafy glade

And make me feel at peace

Stalwart trunks and time roughened boughs

With rustling leaves seem to arouse

Within this hallowed dappled shade

A sense of biding peace

The path is leading me away

And even though I wish to stay

This memory will never fade

I’ve found some inner peace

  11. Very peacefull I found your words. The forests have that effect. Lisa’s photos with your poem will be a perfect match. I love how the path leads you away. Paths seem to always do that to me. Thank you for sharing such a serene moment. Carrie
