Come Follow Me…to Den Rock Park

1. Neighborhood-kab Come follow me through the neighborhood,

2. path-kab where the path leads into the park,

3. entering the forest-kab enter the woodland with me,

4. vernal pool-kab and walk past the vernal pools, dark, calm, and reflective.

5. nest in the woods-kab Pause with me to look at a nest and listen to the Ovenbird sing,

6. shawsheen green-kab before we head down the trail towards the Shawsheen River

flowing full and green.

7. trail-kab Come follow me on the river bank,

8. hawk-kab to where the red-tailed hawk likes to hide, deep in the woodland.

9. wood ducks-kab And the wood ducks rest on the logs in the river,

10. highway 495-kab While up above the the traffic rushes by on Route 495!

So many cars, so many people, all going somewhere else.

Even the rush of the river cannot overcome the roar of the traffic,

11. mallard-kab But down the bank in a quiet pool the mallard feeds peacefully.

12. path along riverbank-kab And as the sun tries to break through, I follow the path,

13. watery green-kab past every shade of green,

14. bridge-kab and over the bridge,

 

15. storm clouds-kab while storm clouds gather,

16. sand pit-kab through the gravelly meadow,

18. trees-kab beyond the new growth trees, into the woodland,

19. shade-kab where I find the path towards home.

    1. Gaelyn, it does look and feel refreshing...until the humidity rises and the black flies come out! But that hasn't happened...yet!
