I went into the woods one day
And there I walk and lost my way.
When it was so dark, I could not see
A little creature came to me.
He said if I would sing a song
The time would not be very long
But first I must let him hold my hand tight
Or else the woods would give me a fright.
I sang a song, he let me go.
But now I am home again,
there is nobody I know.
This was written by Stevie Smith. This was my favorite poem when I was twelve years old. I decided to share this here because I saw my ‘long lost’ yellow notebook earlier after many years! It contains poems I’ve written during my childhood days. It feels so nostalgic and at the same time, it was a relief ❤
