The Forest Way

Trees and a pond in the Forest of Dean

The Forest Way


Across the gate a wilful stare
"You must keep more than 2 metres from there"

"Don't touch my wall whatever you do
I'll risk contamination by osmosis from you "

A person helped, a bag or two,
dropped at the door with a wave for you

We hate being herded us Forest folk
But there's arrows on the floor to help us cope!

We grumble and moan ‘bout most everything
but at the end of the day we go safely in

We'll fight this virus like the bravest of men
and return to the forest and fauna again

Tis here in the forest with our particular ways
we'll dogmatically live out the rest of our days.
