The Giant’s Glasses

One day
While walking
In the local park,
Past Dark

I saw
A strange shape
That shouldn’t be,
Under tree

Hidden
And quite stark,
Really blending
With bark

I took
Two passes,
When I found some
Glasses

Giant
Must have
Dropped them there,
I swear

Very
Long ago,
In the cold snow,
You know

They’re big
As branches
On Maple tree,
You see

Glasses
This huge size
Are very rare.
Don’t stare!

Let them
Stay right there.
Someone’s needing
A pair.
