Poem (and contest): A Country Life

Post by mr_morgan » Tue Apr 18, 2023 8:35 pm

Antelope Hill Publishing is holding their 3rd annual poetry / writing competition. Entries are accepted from March 15th to April 30th 2023, there're a few cash prizes, and this year's theme is "Touch Grass". Here is my submission for the poetry section. I wrote this simple poem in March of 2022.

"A Country Life"

A country life is the life for me
The fresh mowed grass and poplar trees

A porch to sit, some tea to sip
I'll watch the horses prance and skip

The chickens crow, and strut, and peck
The lumber's here, let's build a deck

A fencepost leans, on either side
It's rainin' now, best head inside

All cuddled up, the fire roars
My love for you forever soars

You're sittin' there so soft and bright
I'm glad you got to be my wife

Our kids're somewhere raisin' hell
Those little tikes, I love 'em well

We'll raise 'em up, then let 'em go
Our hair is turning white as snow

We're older now, and losing sight
A cane to stand, with vintage pipe

The kid's are here, they got the rest
Now's time for us to leave the nest

We'll go together, hand in hand
The Upward Path, Creator's plan

I love you dearest, that much is true
A country life, for me and you
- Mr. Morgan

I don't know how the folks at AH Publishing judge poems, but with the penultimate stanza you'd get my vote. ᛉ
