Country Barns

Poem By Marilyn Lott

They are as country as country can be
Been around for many years
Their usefulness innumerable
They quiet so many fears

They house beasts of every kind
Through storms in dark of night
Many styles and sizes but
You always know them on sight

Ah yes, barns that are so important
Part of the country, my friend
Surrounded by fields of grass
Around every twist and bend

You see them in all stages of life
But still they have such charm
Nothing in the world says country like
The good ‘ole country barns!

For everything is new

Or like a flower sipping morning dew

Three ducks pecked around
In a garden one warm day
They wore beautiful coats
Of white feathers to display

A Bologna Sandwich?

I love a hamburger that is cooked just right
Sliced tomato, onion and a pickle too
A sandwich of chicken or turkey is nice
So many choices that we can pursue
