Give Me a Hammock in the Woods

Give me a hammock in the woods
A book or two
And let me pretend the world has stopped for now

Let the blue jays squabble and the red squirrel scold
An hour or two
Beneath the pines' and cedars' shady boughs

I'll close my eyes and slow my heart, sigh deeply
A breath or two
'Til all those stressful lines have left my brow

Sweep me away in someone else's story
A world or two
As far away as imagination allows

While sunlight dapples fragrant forest floor
A prayer or two
For it to be happy ever after soon somehow

I bake. I write. What goes better together than a good story and a delicious fresh-baked pastry? Nothing. And I can give you both. Grab a hot cuppa and join me.
