A COUNTRY GIRL~

NEAR THE MANY FIELDS~

AND THICK VARIETY OF TREES.

I CONVINCED HER TO WALK ALONG.

WE DRIFTED~

BEHIND THE REST OF YOUNG FROLIC-KEY GROUP.

MY INDIAN FEET HAD TO WAIT BY SLOWING~

 TO HER DAWDLING PRIS’SY BEAT.

 A LOGGING ROAD UNDER FOOT~

 SHE SEEMED TO ONLY CREEP~

 LINGERING PAST THE FUNFILLED WOODS.

 

FIRST PAST THE ANIMAL CEMETARY~

 WHERE I TOLD HER~

OUR BELOVED PETS WERE BURIED.

 

THAN THE SAW MILL DIRT ROAD~

 AS FIELDS GENERATED~

WAVING HAY SEEMING TO DANCE~

 SO FROLIC-KEY and GAY!

OTHERS WITH THEIR OWN NARRATIVES~

 

THE OLD SLAUGHTER HOUSE~

DILAPIDATED AND ERIE.

THE WORK HORSE BARN~

BARE AND EMPTY.

THE SAW MILL~

VACANT AND RUSTY.

THE COOL NATUARAL SPRING~

BUBBLY and DIVIDED.

 

THE NEXT PATCH OF ROAD~

WITH TREES THAT DARKENED.

THE NARROWER PATH~

THAT OFTEND FRIGHTENED.

 

THE HAUNTED SHELL OF A HOUSE~

COLD and  ABANDONED~

STOOD LOST OF DREAMS~

FROM YEARS PAST~

EXPRESSIONLESS YET~

CERTAINLY DANGEROUS.

THE OTHERS IN THE OPEN CORN FIELD!

AS MY HEART REALED~

 And MY HEAD WANTED IT SO MUCH!

Come on Cheryl!

Come faster!

If you do not hurry~

We will miss all the laughter!

WE DID NOT WAIT TO ACHIEVE~

 THE ANSWER THERE!

THAN THERE WAS FIRE UNDER BOTH OUR FEET~

 AS COUSIN RAN AS FAST AS ME!

 

TO THE HOME WHERE SAFETY WAS THE PLACE!

RETREAT WAS THE PRACTICAL TAKE!

PARENTS THAT LISTENED~

 AS EXCITED VOICES TOLD~

OF THE TWO BABY BEARS~

 AND MOMMA INEVITABLY~

CLOSE BEHIND AND BOLD!

 AS TIME WENT BY I VENTURED BACK~

WITH EYES ALWAYS PEELED~

 AND EARS ALWAYS ALERT~

 FOR THE NEXT TIME~

TWO BABY BEARS WOULD BE THERE~

OR WORSE!~

A BIG PROTECTIVE MOMMA BEAR~

 WOULD CROSS MY PATH in TERSE….!

It seemed like reality to my cousin & I at the time.

That is when bears just started coming back into our area of Conneticut.

Now it is more of a mtter of fact.

There are lots of bears that meander thru.

Although we still do not like to come face to face with them.

Especially babes that might have a mom near=)

True childhood story to me my friend=)

I was blessed with a wonderful adventurous childhood.

I wish all children could had been so lucky=)

May God always bless you and yours my friend.

Thank You so much for stopping by=)

BEAR EXCURSION.

I have puposely not put the childrens poem/stories on here.

This actually was intended to be one, but because I have not done the illustrations for it yet~I figured "what the hay"~and put it out there=)

May your light always shine and continue to warm others as you do.=)

Now I am heading over to read your latest speaking of light.

I have been meaning to do so for a bit now, by you stopping by gets me in focus to do just that!

As an artist I need to be steered to focus=)

PURE LOVE,

Lisa

Thank you for this wonderful little tale, I enjoyed it. Now dear, I think you were running so fast you did not proofread well enough, you may want to edit it. I at first thought barried was cute and on purpose, but then I ran into than a few times and Chryl too. Also inevitable not enevitable. Also frolicy, learn to use your spellcheck unless it is intentional, Just right click on a red underlined word to fix usually. I am not usually this picky, but this is good and to me the misspelled words detract from your wonderful poem. I have had this problem too in the past and once in awhile I miss one or two, hey, we're human aren't we? Thanks for this lovely piece.

ralwus thank you so much for helping me.

Hopefully I have it corrected right now.

The sad thing is I did use the spell checker, but the spell checker doesn’t always catch things (like names) (Why did I use the name “Cheryl” “it has always been a hard name for me to spell” “I couldn’t have used Shelly or Sally?” LOL) when you have a high vocab and have such a terrible spelling handicap as well as a hearing auditorial deciphering language challenge.

So I should had took more time to check every meaning of words to make sure it was in deed the words I wanted.

I was in too much of a hurry with this and I did not do that.

I need a human to proof read for me because sometimes even with using all the above precautions I still (with 2 different spell checkers) can goof.

Which can be very frustrating and tedious for me, but I will never give up because I love writing so much!

Yes sometimes it is on purpose I spell things a certain way because sometimes I like to utilize the poet’s prerogative in pronunciations to how I would express it & also occasionally I make up my own words that I think should exist (lol).

Hopefully I did catch all corrections yet I did leave or correct differently on purpose some words.

I was begrudging the rewrite; however feels much better it is done now.

However if you notice something I missed, please I welcome your wisdom and constructive criticism. Besides it teaches me things and truly with my spelling handicap I can’t always see it, unless questioned.

I am surprised maven101 didn’t say something; we’ll have to straighten him out –LOL-He also is someone whom is a dear sole to help proof read my bungles.

I truly do appreciate both of your constructive in put, and actually look forward to it!

Thank you also on all your very kind praising words.

May you always be blessed,

Lisa
