The Old Man of the Forest
by Cassie Alaina
Age Group: Adult
I was walking down a wooded path
this is my second home
then I ran across something
That I did not know
I got alittle closer
to see what I could see
I blinked, and blinked again
I just couldn't believe.
There was a small Old Man
sitting in a chair
this wouldn't have been weird
but he was floating in the air!
The chair was rocking gently
it was sparkleing baby blue
I thought he had no feet
but really his shoes were just the same color blue.
On his lap laid an orange carpet bag
I stared at him in shock
as he tossed me a silver box
I tried to open it, but it had a lock.
I looked up at his little crocked grin
question marks all over my face
"Where is the key?" I asked
"point me to the place"
There was a glint in his eye
lifting up a shaking finger he tapped his boney chest
I placed my hand over my heart
I could feel where the key rest
I pulled out the skelliton key, and held it up
the light passed through, splattering rainbows everywhere
the old man was staring
but I was to mezmorized to care
I finally awoke from my daze
Then I raised the silver box
The key entered and slowly turned. Then to my surpize
a shiny fog seept out, prancing in the air taking form of the fox
I was emersed, but I could see the Old Man turn to leave
an ancient oak door, he showered with knocks
time reversed, his wrinkled face turned young,
"You can never tell what One's key unlocks"
