Follow the Leader...

Follow the Leader


She walked along the stony narrow pathway

Dodging the wobbly sharp pebbles and stones

The sound of the cascading ravine befriended

She acknowledged the companions following

Laughing delightedly at their apprehensions

Defying cries of warning she marched on staunchly

Singing puerile hymns to cheer them all up

A dragonfly lighted on her bare thin shoulder

Whispering words of encouragement

She fearlessly skipped down the remaining dusty stairs

Turned and waited for the others to catch up.
