Country Memories

Poem By Marilyn Lott

I look at pictures from long ago
Of family, friends and such
Mom and Dad doing their chores
Memories that I love so much.

Working out in the hay fields
Mom in her kitchen with a smile
Ah yes, I love those photographs
I gaze at them once in a while.

It puts me back into the past
Oh sure, some memories hurt
But such is life, we all feel that
Only off and on in little spurts.

I know that you too have thoughts
Of happy times and also worries
But for me what I love the most
Are my treasured country memories!

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

Sometimes I kind of feel sad and bored
So I decide to have a little chat with the Lord

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

So many choices that we can pursue
