A Mirror becomes a razor when it is broken. A stick becomes a flute when it is loved. -Yoko Ono

This is a place for all to see

This is the place for you to be
A place of wonder
A place of woe
A place that some animals
Call their home
This is a valley created by God

The devil himself tried to destroy
The trees were all left behind
The houses burned by none other than him
The leaves dried no life left in them
He tried but surely failed
But humans came back only to applaud
This is a valley created by God

The birds they all sing a soft lullaby
While a man and his wife wash away time
The sounds and the sights are all very clear
Even the cemetery a place full of sorrow
Is in a spectacular spot we call Fox Hollow
This spot a nice place not ever flawed
This is a valley created by God

The men that once lived here fallen like trees
Never forgotten
still heard in the breeze
The ferns and the shrubs coat the dark ground
Until the time summer comes back around
Shenandoah National Park
A place of fun and a place of awe
This is a place created by all

My Pre-Ap english class went on a trip to Shenandoah National Park and were asked to write a short poem, story, or documentary and this is what I chose to write.
