Daydreamer

He’s alone in his thoughts as he sits in class. His mind too full of wonder to focus on the task. “Wake up, says his teacher, you’ve got work to do.” “Science and math and a test or two.” But he never hears a word she says. He is lost deep in the fantasy inside his head. He dreams of a world far away Where he can laugh and play. Where girls and boys Can have all the candy and toys. Where dragons can fly And castles soar into the sky. Where monsters roar And eagles soar. Where there are no rules And never a day of school. That is where his mind is at, All day, in that chair he sat. But teacher don’t despair. For while homework he might not care. That boy who you scold Might be the one who changes the world.

See the Forest Through the Trees


We counted the trees in the forest,
And we came to an end.
We know their number,
So let the cutting begin.
But first please consider…..
A forest is more than just trees.
forest
It’s a home for the bees,
And the squirrel who sees
High into the sky
Where the acorns lie.
It’s a home for the eagle
Stalking its prey.
And the tiny beetle
Moving along its way.
It’s a shady lagoon
On a warm afternoon
For travelers to discover
Not a moment too soon.
It’s a place for the snail
And its wandering trail,
And the bushy fox tail
And the flowers blooming in June.
So please won’t you see
A forest is more than just trees.
It’s a place to call home
For all the creatures to roam.
And it brings joy to you and me.
