I MUST CHOOSE LOVE OR WANDERLUST BY ROBERT HEWETT SR.

THE MOUNTAIN OR THE VALLEY

I love the mountains regal and tall,

The dark green forest and waterfall.

Even the chipmunks that run and play

The antelope that meanders my way.

Slender Aspen in summer and fall

The Cougar’s loud nighttime mating call.

Cold clear streams with Trout fish abundant

Snowcapped mountains, never redundant

My heart races as I climb the slope

My soul is filled with much life and hope.

I love mountains reaching to the sky.

Something different has caught my eye.

Green grass and clover after a rain

Yellow fields of corn bursting with grain

Cattle lowing to be milked and fed

Rooster crowing, get out of your bed

Gentle streams lazily drifting by

Fish jumping high for a dragonfly

Dogs barking at small children at play

The bright green valley begs me to stay.

There is a new force pulling at me

Stronger than any tide of the sea.

Your love enthralls my whole heart and soul

In a way that’s awesome to behold.

Church bells ringing calling me to you

Wedding chapel ready for vows true.

I love the mountains, I hear their call,

In winter snow, spring, summer or fall.

Honeysuckle vines, songbirds singing

Valley life so sweet, good friends mingling.

Mountain Laurel blooming on the hill.

Hummingbirds hover, mockingbirds trill.

Where or where do I want to call home

High on the peak or on the rich loam.

My life in the mountains was rich lore.

My wife in the valley I love more.

      Ah, you're making me think of this really cool song from a local band about "move to the country, throw out the TV, eat a lot of peaches, etc." I love the imagery used in this. :)
