I Heard The Forest Speak

I sat upon a fallen tree
In the forest deep,
As I sat there watching,
Autumn fell about my feet.

Sunlight pierced the canopy,
And danced among the trees.
Dappling all, it fell on boughs
And lit the falling leaves.

A staccato burst rent the air,
The woodpecker plied his trade.
Then from on high, startled crows
Began their own tirade.

Sitting there in silence,
I heard the forest speak.
Such enchantment did I find,
From my woodland seat.

The light was now fading,
But I was loathe to leave.
For I had found contentment,
My idyll, amongst the trees.
