This is a poem I wrote that got published by Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans when I was 12. So long ago!


Woods can be such an exciting place to live

There are so many things it will give

You can climb trees that are high

The trees are so high they can touch the sky

There is soft grass for you to walk barefeet

Or you can go fishing, it is really neat

There are bugs that walk on the ground

Ants will be building a huge mound

There are pretty rays of sunlight

The light makes the woods so pretty and bright

The breeze even sways the beautiful trees

There are birds that soar through the air

Their baby birds need lots of care

There’s not a day that its beauty does not cease

And each passing day will bring great peace

Color of Fall Commencement

Cheaha State Park
