Sorry for not posting in a week. I had a busy week. I will update you tomorrow, but as the sun sets, I thought that I would post a poem that I recently wrote. I hope that you enjoy it
As I settle in for the night
I turn off my cot’s sun and
Hunker down beneath my
Quilt. Here the quiet land
Surrounds me. No new
Bothers can come upon me
Because all the things now shrewd
Are not in here where it’s homey.
I have my quill next to my bed,
And I start a trip down south
Where I can relax my body and head.
So I put to rest my power mouth,
And I stare at my covered torso.
Light it is, but I love its old feel.
Grandma made it years ago
Working on it after the evening meal.
I go into a slumber.
Lo and behold, I ignore the cold.
The hours I don’t want to number
Until to get up I am told.
Tomorrow I will be warm
With fishing and hiking to do.
Nothing will tire me before heading back to the farm
Because I will be relaxed as soup.
