Poem - An Adventure

It's time for an adventure now
So when I rise from bed
I hope to make this normal day
Adventurous instead

Rather than going left today
Perhaps I'll take a right?
And follow where the road may lead
I'll wander 'til it's night

If any fences, gates or walls
Should rise in front of me
I'll hurdle them with such a bound
And see what I can see!

What special places could I find
If I should walk for miles?
If any stangers I should meet
I'll greet them with a smile!

Through luscious forests I could roam
Or golden hills so tall
I'll stroll beside some mighty streams
And bathe by waterfalls

I think of distant mountains tops
That touch the crimson sky
Imagine deep and eerie caves
Where sleeping dragons lie...

...But dragons will mean danger though
And troubles lay ahead
Not everything is nice and kind
There may be things I dread!

There may be hungry wolves and bears
That want to feast on me
And lurking spiders with their webs
Could string me up for tea

Perhaps there will be goblin folk
That cut and stab and thrust?
They've burnt the grass that once was green
And turned the land to dust....

Well...I've thought about adventuring
Whilst lying in my bed
I think I'll stay here snoozing now
And dream of them instead
