Two Little Treasures
Ambling through woods at Stanton Park two little
girls best friends catch our eyes, all dolled up they
were like princesses in long satin dresses.
“There's something special about them,” I say,
both giggling...one in shiny pink, blue and green,
the other shimmering in gold and yellow, as both
sparkled wearing red wellies covered in mud,
wings were all they needed chasing each other
around ancient trees...as fleeting sounds of birds
scattered in winter's chilly breeze.
The air so cold as we passed stagnant ponds of
watery mud, till we reach lake of swans and
still those little girls dance on.
Come spring nature's trails will be revealed
those sheep once more pasture in green field,
but for now I'll simply reflect on those two
little treasures that gave me such pleasure.
