Wesson's Bend

Way down south, out on Wesson's Bend
The geese are a' callin' their way on the wind

I'm here in the holla' with the oaks in long quiet
While my own restless mind is comforted by it

There over yonder lies the river and willows
And those muddy banks contrast the sky's drifting pillows

The cane thicket north catches sun in gold slivers
Reflecting in motion, like a thousand clear rivers

There's a sycamore rising through its' carpet of green
A lonely white sentinal to guard nature's scene

I reckon I'll stay here, til' the sun is done fallin'
Ya'll listen'll hear the geese callin'

    You pack so much imagery into every single line. I especially loved the third and fourth couplets, but they are all excellent (P.S. I am honoured to be on your fave poet list! It's funny - I added you to mine the other day too)
