What lurks in the wood?

A spectral figure in a mist-grey coat, 

running on soundless feet

A silent scream rent from a broken throat,

a life now incomplete

Whose feet and legs still know the ground,

whose body no substance feels

The storm that blew the forest down,

yet snapping at her heels

Pity the Dryad who lost her tree,

the dragon who lost her egg

Pity the one who runs foolishly, 

who stops by the wayside to beg

Pity them all yet stay away

from the jagged stumps and mosses 

He who enters the forest today 

May not live to count his losses
