Hiking Through Woods on a Spring Evening…with Kids
We took a hike on a crisp spring eve,
My husband and our children, three.
We went out the door
Into nature’s galore
On the Wilderness Trail through the leaves.
We happened upon a natural swing
Made of vine, a truly beautiful thing.
We took our turns upon it
It held even Mom on it
So strong, Nature weaves her fine string.
The trail led us right to a small pond
Which sat touched, as if by a sprite’s wand,
Boys slid down to the shore
Climbed back up Nature’s floor
Brothers, united in adventurous bond.
Now we’ve all made it home just fine,
Grateful for our adventurous time.
It was fun while it lasted,
Now the kids are all spastic,
I thank Nature for her spring and my wine.
