In the countryside where I walk
Are memories of old, in colors of sunny gold
The grass is green,  the wind gently keens
and  days are never cold

In the midst of stillness stands a barn
red and  sturdy on a farm 
The sweet smell of hay,
the mooing of cows bring  memories 
of home and unrestricted play

Kids played hop- skotch and fired sling -shots
A time of milk pails and iron pots 
Mama's washing hung on the line
 waving in the wind in 2/4th  time

 The  sturdy  barn brought a moment of bliss
As I smelled the hay in the  darkened loft
 I realized how much I so miss 
my mother's loving touch.
