Re: The Goblin Tree

INTRODUCTION

The old willow gently sways in the breeze of this new day . It's been there so many , many years , that it seems down right ageless . It grows great , stong , free and It has stood and held its ground against terrible storms .
It's been hit by bolts of lightning and fierce winds raged at its branches, but wide and high it stands. The mighty trunk holds history and old secrets are carved into it's wooden skin , by many passerbys , over the long, long years.
Far into the large and wonderful park , where it is located , it stands , seemingly low in the gully , at the far end of the outfield of the old and now
abandoned baseball diamond. Beside the tree meanders a small clean and clear creek and edges of a old farm stone wall peeks out from underneath
mosses and brambles.
Now if you were to look down into that scene , on this very day, you would see five bright young people , gathered around under the canopy of
this gentle giant of a tree.
Here we have Jimmy , a boy of adventure and wonder , and Katie, who is his younger sister , full of creativity, Ellen ,her best neighbor friend ,who shares in the fun and crafts , we also see , Sam along with Willie , who are
Jimmy's good, school friends , for they live at different sides of the city, but come visit each other on the weekends.
So this willow tree , which they like to come to when they are all together , to tell their made up stories , serves as a inspiration for their minds eye tree, a tree they like to call "THE GOBLIN TREE ".
The chant they have goes like this :

1. WHERE GROWS THE GOBLIN TREE !
2. IN THE DEEP FOREST OR THE WOODS EDGE ?
3. UP A HILL OR IN A HOLLOW ?
4. WE ALL KNOW WHERE IT IS !
5. BUT WE DON'T TELL !!
ALL. GOBLIN TREE GOBLIN TREE
HOME OF THE GOBLIN GRIN
GOBLIN TREE GOBLIN TREE
STORIES OF THE GOBLIN KIN

These are a few of their stories that revolve around the goblin tree........
