The Forrest Of Glee Part 2
Author: Robert


Welcome to you my traveling friend
Youíve paid your ransom
And some time you should spend.
Iíd like you to meet your new family
Hooty the owl, will call them for me.

With three little hoots they gathered around
To meet the new traveler the kingdom had found.
What was his ransom, what did he pay
To enter the Forrest of Glee on that day?

The King of the Forrest of Glee raised a limb
To show off the prize he had won.
A bright shining coin on a chain of gold
Was glistening there in the sun.

It comes from a treasure
From a far away land, far across the sea.
For I was a captain on a sailing ship
And a fair maiden gave it to me.

Now my pockets are full, but Iím growing tired,
And Iím lonely as could be.
My thanks to you, my friends were few
Now youíre my new family

Part 2 is as good as part 1. (Maybe better)

This is absolutely first class. The fact that it's oriented toward a younger group than mine doesn't bother me in the least.
Takes years off my age.

with Bip. This is a splendid write. Thoroughly enjoyable and appeals to all ages.

Robert! Good one! The poem reminded me of a limmerick in some parts. (especially the last stanza, although there aren't 5 lines). I like the part, " a bright shining coin on a chain of gold, was glistening there in the sun". The empirical senses. I could see the chain.

Can't wait for the sequel.
