via Daily Prompt: Forest


Deep within the forest
Lived a unicorn and a troll
The unicorn was a baby
And the troll…. not very old.

The troll and the unicorn
Were abandoned in the woods
Someone didn’t take the time
To love them like they should.

Thankfully a little boy
Out walking on his own
Came upon the two of them
And brought the two back home.

He hid them in his closet
They often slept under his bed
They were happy and carefree
And sometimes slept with him instead.

The three of them spent lots of time
Playing with his toys
They loved to play and sing to him
He was their very own sweet boy.

His parents were oblivious
They seldom came into his room
It became a magical abode
Filled with love and lots of tunes.

In time they got much bigger
It was time to take them back
He had to hide them from his parents
So he placed them in a sack.

Off they went on a journey
He followed the path… back the same way
Right back where he had found them
On that magical, special day.

They were sad at first to leave him
But in time they did adjust
He came back to be with them
Every Saturday, a must.

He rode upon the unicorn’s back
They traveled the hillsides together
The troll had built a woodland home
Made with stones, twigs and feathers.

He served tea and biscuits too
Jam and lots of berries
Often they had visitors
The gnomes, the dwarves and fairies.

Such fun to spend the day with them
Where the grass was deep and lush.
They all meant the world to him
He loved them all so much.

    1. Thank you so much! I am looking for an illustrator. May have to self publish. Have tried to get an agent, but no luck yet. I made a book on my own for my friend’s granddaughter. I did the illustrations, but they were pretty silly! It’s about manatees…It’s called, MY CHUBBY MERMID. She’s four years old and loved it, though. ! I posted it on my blog a few months ago. Thank you for your kind words of support!!!!! πŸ™‚
