In the forest
is a meadow
where nary
a tree stands.
                                                               
There, a young boy
settled,
galloping
its edges
swordless,
unafraid.
 
But to every
creature
in this clearing,
a simpler
story came
to be told:
 
Here once lived
a boy child,
strong and true,
who circled
this glade
for fun.
 
And with
minions
of evergreens
beside him,
dodged
Mom, spelling
and math.
