trees

 

Shadows weave the web that binds me

Falsely in thought, in truth I’m free

Do I dare trust escape is near?

Whisper my love, the trees can hear

 

Gentle moonlight, pray conceal me

And let my secret rest with thee

Would that I could put down my fear

Whisper my love, the trees can hear

 

Go, get thee to your hiding place

Tread with care, not a sound, no trace

Though it may seem your way is clear

Whisper my love, the trees can hear

 

Winds have set the trees to swaying

Go, there’s danger in delaying

Swiftly and surely, disappear

Whisper my love, the trees can hear

 

Wary of the daylight’s greeting

Grace gift me a while yet sleeping

Smiling your blessings in my ear

Whisper my love, the trees can hear

Felt like a good time to break from the acrostics – halfway through the alphabet – I’ll return with ‘N’ tomorrow 🙂
