we shall go to the forest

we shall go to the forest poem by steven james humphreys

we shall go to the forest

and spend a day

clothed in its broken darkness

enjoying its woody fragrance.

the light will filter down

spotlighting falling leaves

as we lie on our blanket

petting cuddly white,

brown and

black rabbits,

feeding them

celery and carrots

while we eat

our sandwiches

and look up

through the trees

in wait of parting clouds

which will share the blue sky.
