My Love

Poem By Roy Kieling

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
I whispered to myself 'I love you' and from my eyes came a line of tears

Her big blue eyes a twinkle of a star
Hair like champagne but not from a bar

Oh mother Oh mother I have found her at last
you must see her come fast come fast

I must speak to her but not be too forward
But looking into those eyes made my speech a little backward

Perhaps she is a movie star or even a princess
My boy come back down to earth and forget all this foolishness

For at the animal shelter one meets all kinds with fur
When I put her in her carrier to take her home out came a big purr

Comments about My Love adorable! ! Very nicely written. Sincerely, Mary

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

Little Old Church

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

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
