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
