This Land is My Land

Pastoral country Where folks wave to passers by-- Farmers plowing Exit 386 Wal-Mart, fast foods, and hotels-- Tourists stop Modern businesses Of every type one might need-- The short road to town Refurbished storefronts With arts antiques and barbers-- Downtown businesses Houses big and small Fill the local neighborhoods-- Quiet streets State Parks, music fests And neighborhood barbeques -- Entertainment Outside of town Beautiful farms and woodlands-- The rural folks The river rises Bringing water to my land -- Children in kayaks The home of brave hearts Who understand nature’s way -- King and rattlesnakes The home of the free Where people are seen smiling-- Live Oak, Florida ã June 5, 2012 Dane Ann Smith-Johnsen Written for Poetry Soup Member MY LAND IS MY HOME Sponsored by: ~ SKAT ~
