As Coffee Greets Suager Cane

Clucking in the barnyard awaits the dawn With the smooth raucous of morning. Sheep dogs rise, stretch and yawn While expecting the morning meal. The horses lazily doze in the stables. As the sun slowly breaks over the maples Life begins to stir within the farm house. Eggs begin grazing in bacon grease And dough is rolled out with care. The radio crackles forth to release The forecast of upcoming rain. All seems quite normal in the world As the coffee greets sugar cane. Soon the peaceful rise gives way to chores. The sensible labors of farm life Begin to be attended to without much lore. The eggs are gathered and feed is laid. The dogs get their meat and the horses wake. The farm hands ride out to gather the sheep. And the world is left to its small take.
