Little Old Church

Poem By Roy Kieling

It's a little old church just off Main Street
Were people of many denominations come to meet
The old wooden pew have been replaced with plush chairs
53 seats are all it will hold arranged in rows of double pairs

'Gimme that Old Time Religion' is a song you will hear
Plus many a hymn that might bring a tear
When the choir is called, half the congregation comes forward
To sing beatiful songs to our Lord

With a clear loud voice Pastor Ron began
Explaining the Old Testament, he knows he can
His good sermons are what bring us here
And we will all be coming back for many a year

The hitching posts are no longer there
Nor a buggy pulled by the owner prized mare
Now horse and buggy days have faded away
But this old church is here to stay

So if you are in Humboldt, Arizona on a Sunday morn
Come on in and hear about when Jesus was born
Preacher Ron Moyer will welcome all of god's people
And if you wish might even let you pull the rope to the bell in the steeple

Cows Out

You've never really lived on a ranch or a farm
Till you've heard, 'the cows are out' alarm
Little Jed, you get some hay
I'll saddle the old gray

My Love

I had never believed in love at first sight
But when she came through that door an hour before night

I got a lump in my throat, I've been wrong all these years

Gribble Barn

Down the road about half a mile from home
Stands the Old Gribble Barn with its high dome
It's always been red though sometimes rather faded
Which gives the appearance this barn is dated

Old Barns

I love old barns, the wood all weathered
Always imagine a couple of horses there, tethered.
Big ones, small ones, no matter what size
In the country, you're sure to see one just over the rise

Sheep Barn

A standard old barn with lean-tos on each side
There must be a story these old wall hide
It stands all along no one to ask
I'm sure it was a sheep barn build by the Basque
