Barefoot on this emerald carpet
toe-by-toe I squish across.
I softly sink in velvet green.
Oh how I wish for socks of moss.
Look for more of Amy’s lighthearted poems celebrating the birds and brambles, maples and mushrooms of the forest in this book:
Wisps of imaginative poetry that span a yearful of seasons are paired with Robbin Gourley’s richly colored, lovely watercolors. The artwork is just so evocative and inviting.
Share these with preschoolers and up, and catch the romance of the forest.
Forest Has a Song, poetry by Amy Ludwig Vanderwater, illustrated by Robbin Gourley
