Childhood memories of living in the country


Country Living
In the country
where the fields are long
the grass is green
walking through pastures
and paths unseen
Birds are singing
up in the trees
the flowers are pretty
but avoid the
April is coming
trees a’ bloomin’
farmers are planting
seeds in rows
hoping and praying
that something grows.
I like chicken
and sweet potato pies
sitting on the porch
swatting flies.
Fried fish on Fridays
with slaw and tea
after church dinners
were best for me
Saturday’s for fishing
down at the pond
baiting my hook
and throwing it in
nothing comes back
except the wind.
Yes, country living
is made for me
sitting under the old oak tree
enjoying the shade
This is living

I got it made….

And I was country when country wasn't cool, too. Feeding the chickens, milking the cows at 5 am, cleaning out the chicken coop ... ewwwwwwwwwww ... helping with all the meal preps, and making sure the men were comfy. Then after all of that if there was time, we sat and relaxed a little. but on Sunday nights, we watched Ed Sullivan, tired or not. Grandpa told funny jokes, uncle Johnny worked at the air force base as a reservist, aunt Caroline worked at the drug store, and grandma Dolly cooked, cleaned, and cooked some more. I would trade all that I have now for those days back again, because country living is the life for me. This was all before the dark days came. Thank you for sharing.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie
