Soldiers of the Forest

Dark majestic firs stand tall
Like soldiers ready for the war
Loyal, strong and steadfast there
Swaying, yet firmly on the floor

The ground covered green with ferns
Their long fronds protecting nature
Rustlings can be heard, though never seen
Scurrying around in safety, for sure

Standing in groups, like generals
Broad oaks look proud in their finery
Reaching out for all to admire
Dressed so smart in green livery

The forest is so full of wonders
Watch out though, you may need cover
Stand back, see nature at work
There`s so much to discover

Visited The Forest of Dean, and all the trees took on the mantle of soldiers,
its was fun to think of them that way.
