My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

June 27, 2010 ‘I’m Country”

I’m Country

I was raised in the country
I love the smell of fresh cut hay
That sweet, earthy smell it gets
Drying in the sun on a summer day

I love to hear a tractor in the distance
The big diesel engine’s rattling sound
Cutting the hay, or baling it
Or plowing up the ground

I like the taste of honeysuckle
And the sound of the honeybees
The feel of the hot, humid day
And the touch of a cool evening breeze

Lightning bugs and katydids
June bugs and crickets
Bumble bees and Hummingbirds
Flitting and flying round the thickets

Cattle and horses grazing in the fields
Or standing in the pond trying to cool down
Pigs wallowing in the mud
Chickens in the yard pecking the ground

The ease and comfort on the porch
At the end of a hard worked country day
I was raised up country
I wouldn’t have it any other way
