Living on a farm is never boring There are cows to milk, bulls, steers, calves to feed Pigs to slop and chickens to peck the dust With guineas moving around, exploring Chasing turkeys through the musical lead Dance must Enlightening their lives through adventures Naught is as soothing a silence, a must Ensuring life brings contentment, indeed Knowing we will learn from misadventures God’s just The Speaker Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Sara Kendrick October 20, 2020

My grandpa was a farmer and when my mom left my dad, I spent one year on that farm back in Iowa. A farm truly is a great place for kids to roam!! Congrats on the win.

Thanks for participating in my contest. I appreciate you taking the time and writing this nice event from your life. I have lived rural most of my life and some of the time we have had the garden and animals which is very unique to say the least. Sara

I love this, Regina! Similtude to having grandchildren over. They take work but it is worth the moments caught on the camera of the mind. God bless you real good!

Life on a farm is hard work, early morning and lots of things to do.. I think I would struggle to be honest.. Especially when it is cold... Lovely poem Regina..
