This poem is based of Rowan Hood by Nancy Springer. You may not understand the poem if you have not read it.
Of the Rowan Wood
The tears on her face did stand
Clearly on her cheeks as she ran
To find her father, she did not know.
Rosemary ran with arrows and bow
Into the woods
To find where he stood
Trying to find Robin Hood
Dress as a boy, pretend it's a game;
She cut her hair and changed her name.
The girl – a herb, the boy – a tree,
An outlaw she'll now be.
Rowan you find
The daughter of Celandine.
She found Robin's merry men.
She wished her father knew her then
But Robin thought a lad was she,
And accepted her into his company.
Upset, she did go
And he did not know.
Robin's daughter tricked him so.
But Robin was captured by the enemy
She went to him and set him free.
She used her mother's gift to heal
And her secret she did reveal.
Tears fell down
As the truth was found
And in the forest there was no sound.
Those who in others eyes have flaws
She helped them become outlaws.
They made a promise as they held hands
Representing the silver bands.
An outlaw there stood
The child of Robin Hood
Is Rowan Hood of the Rowan Wood
