Where Nature Always Sings

I don’t long for riches, for gold or fancy things,
I want the country life where nature always sings.
I feel the need to be close to a winding stream,
where evenings at sunset, I can relax and dream.

Scenic open spaces with clear skies overhead,
cool nights in the forest, pine needles for a bed—
I don’t want the city where horrid clamor rings,
I want the country life where nature always sings.

Poppy Herrin is married to the love of her life Jason, and together they have four daughters and one grandson. She is originally from Laurel, Mississippi, but recently relocated to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She has been writing poetry since 2001 and since then her poems have appeared in many publications and have received various contest awards.
