Rain in the Oak Forest, Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Breathe boldly, inhale as deep as you can
Feel the sensation of the flavored air
Stretch your arms so to create an eagle’s span
Then invigorate your pace if you dare

Chase the deer should they suddenly appear
Search for the nymph if it is your pleasure
Listen ever closely as they are near
But they will respond becoming a blur

It’s magic being in the oak forest
With the light tapping of each drop of rain
When the dark forest can be its brightest
Feeling the rain washing away your pain

Come and hitch a ride on a unicorn
Rain at your face, a time never to mourn
