The Road

 

 

Wheel rutted undulating 

Tracing the route of iron

Shod wagons and worn 

Boots

 

Verges verdant in primrose

Queen Ann’s Lace and

Milkweed green tufts of

Errant grass

 

The farmstead in worn white

Clapboards bright curtains

Of calico print blowing

In a summer wind

 

Shade from a Jesuit pear

Gnarled and twisted in

Proof of a life of steadfast

Strength

 

So goes the country road

In promise of tomorrow’s

Day and proof of

Yesterday’s
