The Old Barn

In barren fields where once was grown Golden wheat in springtime sown Still stands the barn from long ago The ravages of years it's foe For seasons of neglect atone The whims of natures force are shown Within it's walls her voice well known Once proud timbers forced to bow In barren fields But yet it stands on feet of stone With faded walls and weathered tone Staunch against the winters blow Remembering still the plow and hoe Abandoned it now dwells alone In barren fields

    I live with this..beauty and sadness surrounding me ..the remnants of an 1890's farm. Perhaps you'd like my verse The Corn Crib Congrad's on your win. Light & Love

    We both live in areas steeped in yesterday. It is only for us to see it.

    Very nice poem. i think it would be fun to remake the barn into a place of enchantment, don't you?
