Sounds Of A Forest - By: Sloan Tunnicliffe

Deep in the forest an old tree stands, beside a girl with a stick in her hand.

The tall tree, so powerful and strong, the broken stick so weak and wrong.

Bushes shiver of little critters, dashing and running from here to there.

A young deer and her daughter, watch the trees from far below in the place they call their home.

Flowers whine and twine beside the rushing waters of the river.

Bubble and bobble, whish and wash.

Down the water goes into the pond, this forest will stand till the rising dawn.
