LOST IN THE FOREST

LOST IN THE FOREST

Standing in the cold on the edge
of the forest watching the parade
When old man told me of his life
Told me his wife was gone just
Then I saw Tony run in to the
forest I say hay he didn't hear me
Just then a troll came out forest
and drag me in the forest I saw
Tony go right I went left then
I heard girl say over here Tony
The deeper I went in to the forest
I could hear a vioin playing and
Then the troll stop and said your
on your own then I know I was lost
in the forest I walked though the
forest intill I came to clearing
I saw water fall and stream
and  a naked violinist playing
Ave maria when he saw me he ran
in to the forest and I could hear
a guitar and a girl laughing back
in the forsest the deeper I went the
darker it got and got closer to the
sound of the guitar and the laughing
I came to clearing and out the forest
I saw who was playing the guitar it was
Tony, and Cherie was  laughing and I am
No longer lost in the forest.

Hi Greg...It sounds like Tony and I played a joke on you and led you into the forest to get lost!  So sorry!  We have a strange sense of humor, evidently.  I am glad the troll did not get you.  Interesting bit about the naked violinist...lol.  I used to play violin when I was a girl.  I like violinist- Lyndsey Stirling. (I may have spelled her name wrong.)  You have some imagination!  I enjoyed your tale of being lost in the forest.  I would never allow you to stay lost...lol  I am honored you thought of me and Tony for your story.  xo ;)

Hey Greg, 
Cool poem! I'm sorry I haven't checked out your writing previously(so thanks for commenting on mine), but I have limited time(and ability), so I only have a couple of real good friends on here so far. 
I really liked your wacky dream,(and please don't anyone take offense to this...especially you, Tony) but the part of the naked guitar player, I would have vastly pref...nope, not going to say it!. Well written! Enjoyed it.
