Back Into The Woods She Went, by Donna Matthews

little red riding hood
knew all the stories
had even met the big bad wolf
but afraid she refused to live
back into the woods she went
she saw her grandma
she heard the birds
she fed the squirrel
she laid in the winter sun
home again
her day well spent
