Country Drive

Poem By Marilyn Lott

Sometimes you just have to stop everything
Get into your vehicle and take a ride
Forget about your chores and duties
For a little while just let them slide

Out in the country air you drive
Windows down, air blowing through your hair
At the same time it blows away the weariness
For just a while you don’t have a care

Drive past old abandoned homesteads
That left behind so many family tales
If only you could peek inside
To find what those stories unveil

The windmills along the way
Are such a pleasant treat
And along this little journey
You may see someone you’d like to meet

Take the kids and dogs along
You don’t need to get a baby sitter
And if you’re traveling a red dirt road
Well, the trip gets even better!

The world is wide with wonder
For everything is new
A child’s mind is like a sponge
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

He works so hard every day
Doing pretty much what he’s told
The days slowly turn into years
As his life carefully unfolds

So I decide to have a little chat with the Lord
I tell Him just what has been bothering me
I know He understands and He will see

Frank is his name
And around the barnyard
He has risen to fame

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
