Dale Gravett and His New Release Poetry Book Feature in the Epping Forest Guardian
Dale Gravett, author of the new poetry book 'Creatures that Lurk in the Deep, Dark Forest', has recently been featured in the Epping Forest Guardian.
The article discusses this beautiful collection of poetry, as well as more information on the author.
You think that the forest is empty and bare,
with birds and squirrels, and deer and hare
the only cute creatures that live happily there.
But if you look closely at the trees and the leaves,
you'll find many a thing in which no one believes.
Some are quite harmless, but others are thieves,
and worse things are lurking in forms that deceive.
The beautiful forest is quite safe in the light,
the really bad creatures tend to come out at night.
Please enjoy the great forest and romp with delight,
‘cause if you don't believe in them,
they're barred from your sight.
A collection of Creatures and Critters who might inhabit Epping Forest and Loughton Camp, accompanied by nonsense verse and line drawings to aid recognition.
