Down the Woods

Down the Woods

A Poem by Sarah
"

Twisted Fairytales

"
Ticktock goes the clock.
Back and forth as i rock.
I have a story, i have to tell.
When I'm finished, you'll know it well.

It was a strong and windy winters day.
Down the woods, i went to play.
I always played on my own.
In the middle of no where was my home.

I walked through the forest,
as i normally do.
Then suddenly behind me,
there came a great big BOO!

As i turned around,
all i could see.
Was a small little goblin,
in front of me.

He had green hair,
and a fearful smile.
A creepy stare,
and he smelt vile.

He looked at me up and down,
and grew a grin just like a clown.
"your just what I'm looking for",
he did say.
And into my face he sprayed a spray.

Suddenly i fell fast asleep.
I collapsed to the ground,
beside his feet.

He took me down underground,
where everything was dark.
There was no noise.
There was no sound.
Only the smell of tree bark.

He took me to a great big room,
which was bright and very warm.
It reminded me of a burial tomb,
is he going to do me harm?

He tied me to a big blue rock,
which glimmered in the light.
He then looked at his big round clock,
and pulled the rope real tight.

He turned to me with a sneaky grin.
He looked me directly in the eyes.
He said to me "i always win, i have many little spy's".

He said to me "you are my dream".
"Ive waited for so long".
"You are gonna be my queen,
nothing will go wrong".

He had a potion in his hand,
and began to say a spell.
He waved around a magic wand,
and began to ring a bell.

"When I'm done", he said to me.
"You will be my wife".
"You will never again be free,
i will own your life".

I turned my head away from him,
and looked down to my right.
On my face i put a grin,
down there i saw a knife.

I got the knife in my hand,
and started to cut the rope.
This little goblin i cannot stand.
I can get free, i hope!

The rope it fell to the ground,
so i kicked him in the face.
I didn't dare look around,
as i ran from that place.

I ran from the woods.
I ran until i got home.
In my room is where i stood.
No more will i roam.

So if you see a goblin,
who has bright green hair.
Run as fast as you can,
and be very aware.

Beautiful Sarah has painted a beautiful painting like a skilled artist.
She may reconsider her decision,"No more will i roam."
My most favorite stanza:
"So if you see a goblin,
who has bright green hair.
Run as fast as you can,
and be very aware."

I liked this story, it had the feel of a good children's tale to it. There was a little bit of work I thought could be done to shore up the rhyme and rhythm scheme and one misspelling (spy's should be spies shouldn't it?)

I think on a scale of 1 to 10 I'd give it a definite 9 though. Good work :)
