The picture painted
a thousand words but the rules
are five seven five.

When he put black snakes
in the walls to eat fat rats
my barn time was done.

God’s house is dying
piece by piece she falls away.
Awaken heaven.

Some say the old church
should be burnt or torn down not;
keep trying to stand.

Just like teenagers
the almost grown fillies posed
for pictures that day.

Such a lonesome song
the whippoorwill sang that day
in late ev’ning shade

SO LONESOME IT GETS
WHEN BUTTERFLIES AND DUCKS FLY
SOUTH FOR THE WINTER

THE OLD HAY WAGON
NOW SITS IN HER  FLOWER BED
MEMORIES DANCE THERE
