Booth Wood

On stage, but in the pages of a book
Water pearls hidden in the
Hollow of the great oak
Situated within the centre of Booth Wood

Could find a treasure of
Rubies, diamonds and
Fresh water pearls
Day to day my story would not be told

So I start to walk eastward
After awhile, rested by a giant chestnut
It spoke to me, saying I'm full of the
Colours of the rainbow

It was dark. I awoke not knowing
The direction I came from.
