A Walk in the Woods

A Walk in the Woods

One day, I set off for a long walk, mind cluttered, 
A sojourn into the woods, deep. 
A new world, limitless, enigmatic, and unfettered,
My euphoric heart began to leap. 

Dense leaf canopy, emerald foliage, slopes steep,
Sunbeams playing hide and seek,
A cricket’s chirping disturbing a lizard, half-asleep,
I found a happy gurgling creek.

Nature’s beauteous wonders rendered me meek,
I felt great gratitude seep.
Return I did, my difficult life, now no longer bleak,
The sights? Mine to keep.
