 A LOGGING ROAD UNDER FOOT~

 SHE SEEMED TO ONLY CREEP~

 LINGERING PAST THE FUNFILLED WOODS.

 AS FIELDS GENERATED~

WAVING HAY SEEMING TO DANCE~

 SO FROLIC-KEY and GAY!

OTHERS WITH THEIR OWN NARRATIVES~

 

THE OLD SLAUGHTER HOUSE~

DILAPIDATED AND ERIE.

THE WORK HORSE BARN~

THE NEXT PATCH OF ROAD~

WITH TREES THAT DARKENED.

THE NARROWER PATH~

THAT OFTEND FRIGHTENED.

 

THE HAUNTED SHELL OF A HOUSE~

COLD and  ABANDONED~

STOOD LOST OF DREAMS~

FROM YEARS PAST~

EXPRESSIONLESS YET~

CERTAINLY DANGEROUS.

      ralwus thank you so much for helping me.

      Hopefully I have it corrected right now.

      The sad thing is I did use the spell checker, but the spell checker doesn’t always catch things (like names) (Why did I use the name “Cheryl” “it has always been a hard name for me to spell” “I couldn’t have used Shelly or Sally?” LOL) when you have a high vocab and have such a terrible spelling handicap as well as a hearing auditorial deciphering language challenge.

      So I should had took more time to check every meaning of words to make sure it was in deed the words I wanted.

      I was in too much of a hurry with this and I did not do that.

      I need a human to proof read for me because sometimes even with using all the above precautions I still (with 2 different spell checkers) can goof.

      Which can be very frustrating and tedious for me, but I will never give up because I love writing so much!

      Yes sometimes it is on purpose I spell things a certain way because sometimes I like to utilize the poet’s prerogative in pronunciations to how I would express it & also occasionally I make up my own words that I think should exist (lol).

      Hopefully I did catch all corrections yet I did leave or correct differently on purpose some words.

      I was begrudging the rewrite; however feels much better it is done now.

      However if you notice something I missed, please I welcome your wisdom and constructive criticism. Besides it teaches me things and truly with my spelling handicap I can’t always see it, unless questioned.

      I am surprised maven101 didn’t say something; we’ll have to straighten him out –LOL-He also is someone whom is a dear sole to help proof read my bungles.

      I truly do appreciate both of your constructive in put, and actually look forward to it!

      Thank you also on all your very kind praising words.

      May you always be blessed,

      Lisa

      Thank you for this wonderful little tale, I enjoyed it. Now dear, I think you were running so fast you did not proofread well enough, you may want to edit it. I at first thought barried was cute and on purpose, but then I ran into than a few times and Chryl too. Also inevitable not enevitable. Also frolicy, learn to use your spellcheck unless it is intentional, Just right click on a red underlined word to fix usually. I am not usually this picky, but this is good and to me the misspelled words detract from your wonderful poem. I have had this problem too in the past and once in awhile I miss one or two, hey, we're human aren't we? Thanks for this lovely piece.

      It seemed like reality to my cousin & I at the time.

      That is when bears just started coming back into our area of Conneticut.

      Now it is more of a mtter of fact.

      There are lots of bears that meander thru.

      Although we still do not like to come face to face with them.

      Especially babes that might have a mom near=)

      True childhood story to me my friend=)

      I was blessed with a wonderful adventurous childhood.

      I wish all children could had been so lucky=)

      May God always bless you and yours my friend.

      Thank You so much for stopping by=)
