Invitation to a Walk
Oh, come with me to take a walk Along a trail in live oak woods.
Perchance we’ll spy a red-tailed hawk Or charm ground squirrels that stop to gawk. We’ll pause by streams where mallards flock and red-eared turtles sun on rock.
We’ll watch as dragonfly nymphs perform Like minute dancers in summer stock.
Oh, come with me to take a walk.
Nature’s waiting. We’ll stroll and talk.
—Ethel I. Carter
