The Country Poem


The nature of poetry

The smells of evergreen

These words I write

This country poem


Those summer’s daffodils

Those nightingales’ lullabies

I smell the alpine woods

I watch the vagabonds


There are canyons and valleys

There are honeybees and cucumbers

I taste the words from my hands

The words of this country poem


Our myriad worships to God

They are endless, unnumbered

Our treasures are written

On this sheet of a country poem
