The Bench

By Jenny Booker

Legend has it that there in the woods,

Stands a red bench that was made by a powerful widow.

It sits by the lake in a secret place, its location moves each time after it’s discovered.

Many people seek it, but only those that really need it will find it.

For this little red bench has magic.

That when you sit on the glossy red wood,

Those that you have lost will join you.

Some even say it cured them of their illness.

Its shine never fades with the seasons,

But the time spent on it is limited.

The believers call this bench a portal,

A link between the two worlds.

A healing bench or more.

The holy grail of treasures,

A wonder of this world.

The bench of health and happiness,

When all that’s lost is found.
