A Story Poem
by Jerry Logher Muskoka
The Blue Grass
came to the place at last we have found the blue grass the man said.
Green Walk That Moved
I stand here
and the walk will take me to where i wish to go.
White Tree That Fed Me
i have to do is reach for the white tree and eat some and i'll live for ever.
The Air Above Me That Kept Me Warm
was made of a big glass globe it kept me dry and gave me sunshine.
Work That Had To Be Done
There was one man that controled the grass the walk the tree and the globe.But there was a bigger person that controled that one man.
Games They Played
My robot will beat your robot easy said the small boy.
Close They Ware
The girls wore purple and the boys wore red.
Music They Had
Their music was spacecy music and only they could hear it
Their only enemy was night and they could not defeat it.
The Animals They Had
were pink, blue, orange, yellow and they were fat skinny some crawled and
They drank from the silver lakes and rivers.
Animals that Lived in The Thirst
They were gold and brass and nickle to
they were bubble shaped and
arrow shaped and came in all sizes to
they moved fast and slow.
Where They Lived
Where they lived i really don't know.
Their time stood still and dare not move
Why They Lived
to be turned to death and to
live their life that really had know meaning.
An Enemy Came
The colour black came in a cloud form now
they knew that even that one man could not save them or the thirst or the white tree.
What was Left.
As the cold wind blew past they turned to
stone and no longer was there the colour blue,
green, orange, or purple but the coulor black and grey and all was left was
stone and ashes.
For They did not know what they lived for and nor do we so beware of
our only enemy for it may once approach
us and there will be nothing there except the coulor black and ashes.
