Crimson’s Creative Challenge #207 #Old farm lament

The old farmyard looks the same

as the old picture in the frame

but my eyes still fill with tears

as I remember all those years

when the sounds of horses filled the yard

and even though the work was hard

in the evening we would say

this will all be gone one day

and I would rather not be there

when the smoke from engines fills the air

and I know I can safely say

that all I once held dear has gone away

but I am happy because I understand

that this farm remains in good hands

as every other farm throughout this land

  1. It’s ringing with familiarity, but not quite within my grasp
    However, I thoroughly love this 😊​
