Don’t you tread on that snake or it might bite you

Watch your step, let your eyes guide you

Through this maze, clear the haze

 

Don’t you tread on that twig or it might snap

These are items you can’t find on a map

Yet you need to watch out for them too

 

Don’t you tread on that snail or it might die

Leaving its trail, sadly behind, as dye

Take good care where you put your next foot

 

Don’t you slip on those leaves, they make the ground wet

Slip and the dinner table for the wolves is set

Therefore beware of autumn and all its hidden dangers

 

Don’t you get stuck in that mud, above water you must stay

Rather, decorate your home with earthy tones, clay

Breathe it in, let nature be your own

 

Above all, tread lightly for everything you find was there first

See whether you’re stealing someone’s water before you quench your thirst

Stride forwards but beware of the ground underneath, it is within you too
