Sounds of Country Living

Sounds A fire truck whisks by sounding Like a wailing woman grieving As squeals from the train tracks Spit flaming sparks from its wheels I sat down on the porch swing Listening for life’s melody Children laughing in the house Put a smile across my face Rebellious stallions down the road Getting closer by the sound of their hoofs A banjo strumming for a barn raising Has left lingering notes in the air An old cart comes by pulled by a mule A man yells “Rags and Old Iron” for pick up The air is so busy I swore I could hear The greening grass growing beneath my feet Then the oven buzzer went off My bread is done I will listen Again another day for the wind Chimes to beckon me to the porch Carole Cookie Arnold Member Contest Sounds Frank H
