A Country Trip

Have you ever taken a trip
That you just cannot forget?
No matter where you travel
This place was truly a hit

Well, that’s the way it was
While driving to Hitchcock
On that country red dirt road
Such peacefulness I got

Open fields along the way
Cattle gazed right at me
A lonely bull out in a field
Seeing what there was to see

Wildflowers with such charm
The air so fresh and pure
Yep, whatever ails you, friend
This could possibly be the cure

So if someday you find
You can’t seem to get a grip
Hop into your vehicle
And take a country trip!

    I was born in the country, after years of city living, I have returned to my rural roots and now live in a small country town. Our drives and trips are frequent so I can relate to what you've written. Thank you for a lovely poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
