The Forest

Weary of the queen’s somber rule,

her frown as stubborn as a mule,

the forest began

to form its own plan

to find a hilarious fool.

 

Scrolled on a leaf, the message read,

“Joy fast, can’t last!” That’s all it said.

The winds blew up strong.

The leaf flew along

and carried the message ahead.
