One With Nature

I’ve been completely thrilled with Nature
Since on that North Dakota farm
I ran barefoot through the grasses
Without a thought of meeting harm.

My dear daddy was a farmer
And I have been a farmer’s wife.
Yes, I have been thrilled with Nature
Through the whole of my long life.

Gardening is my great pleasure
Where I spend many happy hours
Consorting with Mother Nature
While caring for my pretty flowers.

Cities are all right to visit
In their quaint unnatural ways.
But I’m glad to leave them after
Just one or two exploring days.

It is not far to the mountains
Or a Pacific Ocean beach 
From my home here in the valley.
Nature’s joys are within reach.

    Great work..Tells so much about the poet..If for a contest, reads like a winner to me..Enjoyed reading this morn..Gardening is enjoyable but a lot of hard work..Sara

    Sounds like such a nice place to live. Nature deserves your words.

    Amen Joyce...with you all the way...soon I will be sitting in the middle of my garden eating a warm tomatoe right off the vine with a salt shaker in my hand and juice running down my chin, never wanting to see LA or the like again! Donna

    I do have a lot of respect for the American farmer. I could even taste the country in your poem. A very nice read.
