Adventures are scary. So is nature. Until the adventure is over, and it's time to go home, and suddenly it's hard to imagine having ever been afraid at all... A slightly-spooky, slightly-sleepy bedtime story.

The Whispering

Woods and tails and beady eyes

My oh my

What sweet surprise does

Lie behind that willow tree?

Caution children, that's the way,

The taller trees which groan and

Sway hold no power over you.

Please watch your step. And

If you hear a quickened whisper

Rolling from a gusty tongue,

Don't be scared, wild child.

Your adventure's just begun:

A dip through moonlit trees;

Dancing through a knotted knoll;

A teacher in two turtledoves;

One kiss from princess stole.

Enchantment rises near and far:

You're needed every-when.

And when at last you stagger home,

To your cabin deep in glen,

The forest greets your passing,

Painting pathways on the ground,

Rising from the blanket green

To lead you safe and sound.

Beautiful girl.

Handsome boy.

Sleep, and be at peace.

The whispering will your secrets

Keep,

Soft,

Like willow

Trees.
