A Comforting Thing

I’d left old Kentucky for a while to roam, but now the roads call me, and I’m coming home. Just me and my pickup - we’re now headed to a chilled winter woodland, the cottage, and you. Those back roads keep calling. Old houses with gates I’m now driving past to where my darling waits. I see in the distance a comforting thing. Smoke drifts from your chimney as wind starts to sing. A down home cooked supper awaits me tonight then all-night sweet lovin’ near the warm firelight. Written by Andrea Dietrich on 10/12/13 in the genre of country music for the Groove It! Poetry contest of nette onclaud

    :) HI! I was reading this, thinking what a lovely song it would make and then I get to the ending and discover it IS a song! A smile-maker. My brother in law's funeral was this weekend. Life has been crazy! Hubby forced to work overtime, girl sick with one cold after another... will be TRYING to judge contest this week -- unless life throws me another wrench!!! So sorry,hon. I miss all of you... this is the first visit all week... hugs to ya. Hope YOU are well...

    This poem has a warm and cozy feeling to it. A wonderful description of the heartwarming, rustic style of country music. I loved the form of quatrain that you used, and you did it very nicely! I wish you good luck in the contest!...Thank you for reading my poem, and for your kind comments. I am glad you liked it! :)

    I can hear the twangy guitar and nasal voice in every word. Good writing. Good luck in the contest... Jack
