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 the country poem
