Springtime Forest

LuLu Morris, age 8

See the dewdrops trickling down the branches of the tall tree trunks.

Smell the refreshing scent of the newly washed woodland.  

In the morning sunlight beams and streams through the leaves and it looks so beautiful.

Deer roam around quietly, spot the footprints of them. 

Squirrels scamper around, jumping from branch to branch.

If you’re lucky you might see one.

Leaves tickle your arm if the path is thin, ferns brush at your legs.

In spring shoots appear and snowdrops start to sprout. 

 Later on wild roses bloom, and bluebells cover the mossy ground.   

The scent of them is like perfume.

The sound of the birds singing makes me warm inside.

The forest is wonderful.
