Woodlands

By: Reny D'cruz

Woodlands 
Woods on the mountain
Woods in a steep valley
Dark and green, thick and threatening
Life serving to man and mammalian.
  The piping of bee, screeching bats
High pitched sound of katydids
Those rub their forewings to sing
Together, to the tone of the wood.

The chirping of birds off and on coppice
Calls off flying squirrels and frogs
Electricbuzz of cicadas and cricket, the fiddler
Join the chorus in the late noon of chaparral.

A delightful stroll through the hinterlands 
Brought gorge resilience in reach
The life-serving verdure
Replenish the soul 
of man.
