A Farm House Porch

A farm house porch over looking the fields in the early fall Sits the old farmer who for a while has worked no crops at all He scratches the head of the old faithful collie dog at his side It is just him and the farmer who are reflecting with pride Relatives and friends and loved ones who they have known In a life so full of plenty along with crops they have grown There have been visitors who have driven up that long gravel road Who have held key parts of a life as life jouney unfolds He goes in to the kitchen where there is an old covered chair A chair that will always be covered that he takes special care It is now getting late and before he says his nightly prayer He thinks for a minute who he will include in there Then he gets down by his bedside on old arthritic knees And prays for so many in his life that graciously did please
