Songs of the Forest

Song of the Forest - image shows a waterfall and stream in the middle of a dense forest of trees and moss--covered rocks.

Falling leaves festoon the forest floor as the 
Falsetto of falcons flows fluidly over the fields, where
Faltering fawns flee fearfully from
Following fellows with fierce fire.

Birds beautifully balance on branches of
Birches, where Blue Jays boast their bravado by
Bursting with bountiful ballads, as
Burbling brooks bubble on the banks below.

Sonnets of the sweetest sort, sorbose, some
Sonatas of a sorrowful and sordid state,
Songs soaring softly but surpassing the strength of a 
Sonic wave.
