Mornin’ – Poem

Another one from college:


Thunder cracks mornin’ sky
as I wake up
vigor and spry
Time to milk ol’ Bess again
time to feed
chickens and hens

Collect the eggs
back again
to mom, dad
fire in den

Dad skims milk
Mom cracks eggs
Sis’ comes in
feedin’ horses hay

Gather round table
bow heads to pray
shovel down good eatin’s
so starts another day

    This makes me homesick for the farm. I loved both mornings and evenings in the barn listening to my horses munch their hay and the goats rustle in their bedding. Wonderful poem, Stephen.

    • Leslie,
      Glad I could bring back some good memories. Finding this old poem now seem apropos with my current life adventure 🙂
      As always, thanks for the feedback.
