TOWN CHILDREN

TOWN CHILDREN

Deep in the midst of dawning view 
Children awaken to a fresh morning dew

Eyes heavy with sleeping
Still in their beds
While the chattering of neighbors
Irritate their heads

Deep in the midst of eyes awakening
Telephones ringing becomes disabling

Minds trying to engage
Amid the noise
Another day in a town
That’s lacking poise

Deep in the midst of some town avenues
Children, out the door, meet mufflers spew

Visions of soon visiting  
The country side
Propel their young legs
To dream in stride

While…Deep in the midst of some country side lanes
Children, not so different, find faults and complain

Minds trying to engage
Still in their beds
While visions of town life
Dance in their heads

Deep in the midst of a dawning view
Children awaken to a fresh morning dew

Another day in the country
That’s lacking poise
So tired of the country life
Needing noise

    Some people can't be satisfied. I say make them live in a suburban development. That'll cure em

    Your poems create great imagery... Just a tip Debra, when entering contests, names are not allowed. So, if you have entered this one, you may have to remove your name or it may not get placed..

    Nice, I like where this went. It doesn't matter what side of the tracks they live on, they all find something to complain about. Nicely done Debra.
