A Shelter We Might Share – A Poem

A Shelter We Might Share
Have you a shelter
we might share
deep in the woods
and the mist
with leaves for a roof
and leaves for a floor?
If so
I know someone,
with a compass
set for
who happens
to like leaves in her hair.

  1. Aww, this is so sweet. 😉

  2. Lovely alliterative rhythm and lighthearted sentiment. Nice way to start my day. Thanks for posting!

    Reminds me of a Carl Sandburg poem about travel to distant stars.

  3. Light and airy like a whisper. 🙂
