What Lies Beneath . . . .
Is everything you will ever seek.
A magical world of fairies and gnomes,
and an underground warren rabbit home.
Squirrels and bugs and birds and toads,
fields and streams and no paved roads.
Fish in a pond as clear as can be,
cats and dogs romping merrily.
Flowers and trees with colorful blooms,
a vegetable garden, a field of mushrooms.
The sky is blue and the sun is bright,
the nights are filled with stars and delight.
A happier place there will never be,
than the world that lies beneath this tree.
