"What if the person in the puddle is real, and you're just a reflection?" -Calvin & Hobbes

The forest has a secret
For I heard it whisper in the night
All the trees and flowers hummed, until the moon had turned to light
The forest has a secret
For I heard it’s laughter in the day
The birds and all the bugs, hid their faces in the shade
The forest has a secret
And now that secret’s mine
For I asked the owl in the oak, and the needles of the pine

I just really love nature. My mind is on nature 24/7. I actually wrote this poem in Biology when I couldn't do my homework because my brain kept saying "The Forest Has a Secret". And so that is what came out of it. Hope you enjoy! (:
