Forest and city
A short poem written about my favorite little hiking area which I used to visit for exercise and an outdoor hike.I live in a small village and just across the river is a place with forest and wildlife.I would go on a hike there two or three times a week just to get exercise and to get away.The peace and quite of nature always being an important part of my life style.There were deer and wild turkey and a trout stream in the small forest area.Over the years this place has changed and is now being turned into a suburban area.
Not so long ago
I walked along a path
Not so far away
The pavement of city streets
Walking I see the contrast
In city there is steel and glass
asphalt and concrete pave the way
Machinery is humming and
smoke clouds the sky
people are busy and hurrying all the day
The forest is full of trees
animals and birds are everywhere
All sing songs to God above
The air is fresh and clear
and sweet melodies fill the air.
