The Whippoorwill

Poem By Samuel Hardman

The sun yet warmed the western sky,
But night fell fast;
The Whippoorwill began its solemn cry;
And fragrance of flowers, drawn up by the sun,
Fell as a mist over forest and field.

The Moore's Ford Blues

Down on the Apalachee,
A few miles from town,
There was lots of cussing
And an awful sound.

Moore's Ford Fats Blues

See that mean old fat man
Riding down the road,
While we pick his cotton
And tote the heavy load.

Shaky-Rabbit Blues

I have told you daddy
That I'm nobody's fool;
You been seen with Ruby Jean;
She ain't no good for you.

My Fairest Flower

My fairest flower is blown
And little fish fan
Reflections of its once fantastic cone
Into memory's watery sands.

The Singing Pond

Across the singing pond
The drowsy evening comes;
The sun is down, the moon is hung
And bells toll out the sum.
