Poetry by Ellen Kay



There was a lovely old barn

In Westerville

                Just south of town

                On the 3-C road.

My grandfather’s barn…

                Tall and cozy and gray,

                A marvelous barn,

                A treasure trove

                Of adventure and fun.

My favorite part was the haymow,

                A magical place

                For ghost stories at dusk

And squealing games

Of hide and seek.

I remember the day        

I finally turned brave

                And jumped from the haymow

                To the manger below…

I felt so grown up!

I still feel the excitement

                Of wheelbarrow races,

                Those championship scrambles,

                Tearing like mad from the barn

To the springhouse.

I loved Grandpa’s cows…

                Their black and white coats

                So warm in the winter;

                Their gentle munching

In the heat of the summer,

The soft chiming of their bells

                As they came in a row      

                From pasture to barn

                In time for their milking

                At the end of the day

I loved that old barn…


                                                               Ellen Kay
