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

For over the door which is well worn
Hangs an old sheep's head with curley horn
In one corner stands an old lambing pen
Now where wily coyote has built her den

On a wall hangs old rusty sheep shears
Which were replaced with machines of many gears
I'm told some men could shear several hundred a day
Whom the owner was most willing to pay

An opening in the wall covered by a tattered wool sack
Gives the appearance this barn dates way back
Sheep have been gone from these hills for many a year
Now the land is overrun by antelope and deer

Where have the sheep men gone for good grazing grass
I hear they have moved down near Mule Pass
So here is a barn that will rot and tumble away
But to me it's still a beauty on this bright autumn day
