Country Living

Cats and dogs
Chickens and hogs
Lumps in the ‘taters
And bumps on a log –
Stars in the night
The moon shines bright

Crowds pass through the country
Like clouds in flight –
Coffee and curds
Foxes and birds
Slow conversation
With a sweet flow in the words –
Fresh water rippling at the spring
Gives nature such a beautiful ring
Days like these
Have ways of making a heart sing –
Nights are short, days are long
Worries are few, oaks are strong
Living in the country
Is like giving the soul a wonderful song
