If you go down in the woods today,you’re sure of a big surprise.
I went down in the woods — and was I surprised! There were no teddy bears and no signs of a picnic, but I did see some strange creatures. I saw a head, a dark face with twisted features.
As I watched, a body began to emerge from the ground. I didn’t wait around to see what would happen next.
Father along the path, another creature appeared. At first I saw his head and shoulders only.
But as I watched, two eyes appeared.
I blinked. Was this really happening?
He opened his eyes, I closed mine, afraid to look. And when I did, he’d grown two arms and a leg. Beside him, a piece of wood twitched. Was it becoming a second leg?
I left before I could find out. Maybe he was friendly, maybe not. All I know is, when I came back, someone had taken a bite out of a tree nearby.
