Laura's Lyric

Updated on March 2, 2015

By: Wayne Brown

 

The sun breaks the horizon

Rays of brilliant morn

The rooster perched on the fence

To crow the first alert

Like alarm clocks in the sun

 

 

Wind in the curtains

Blowing cross the sash

Blue Jay outside in the Oak

Shrilling all his trash

Like a carnie barker with his line

 

 

Light reflected off golden wheat

Sunshine bathing at the sheath

Cows lowing lonesome in the lea

Calling out my name

Like young girls lost in the woods

 

 

The new born colt runs the fence

His mama standing near

Babe doves are crying in their nest

Mama hunts for worms

Like a fisherman digs for bait

 

 

A dust-devil dances across the road

Wanting to be something more

Fish are rolling in the pond

Turn their bellies to the sun

Like beachcombers in the sand

 

 

The dipper hangs on the water bucket

Just danglin’ in the breeze

Mama hen sits atop her lofty nest

Some eggs she will bring

Like miracles in the golden straw

 

 

The farm is all aglow in spring

A place of wonderment

The fat pig grunts around the pen

Rollin’ in the muddy sty

Like children playin’ in the rain

      I'll have to take artist liberties, subtitle it myself and just pretend it's "Laura's Poem", lol. Thanks again, Wayne Brown.

      @Saddlerider1...I was sittin' in that rocker Ken just watchin' it all go down! Thanks for your words. WB

      @Lalesu...Laura, somehow I knew you would say that! I was thinkin' this would probably take you back home when I wrote it. I guess I should have called it "Laura's Poem". That dipper water is good stuff! WB

      Wayne Brown, you took this country girl home! I felt like covering my head with a pillow and cursing Miss Nona's rooster to shut up, lol!

      The blue jay and the dirt devil are my favorite lines and of course, the dipper...there's no sweeter taste of water than from a dipper and bucket.

      Like your Old Farmer poem, the farmer would be proud of the crayon colors you use here to describe in detail what a farmer probably sees every day as he rocks back and forth with a smokey pipe to enjoy at the end of his long day and watch the sunset go to sleep over the trees. Wonderfully descriptive. Thanks again WB..perfection
