Country Roads


Many country roads I’ve traveled
A lifetime of them to be exact
No better place on earth to be
And my friend, that’s just a fact

The earthy fresh and sweet
World of the country roads
Mean everything to me
They help to lighten my load

The swirling, twirling clouds above
Set off the country scene
If you drove those country roads
You would know just what I mean

There’s hope and fresh acceptance
When the country roads you ride
A place for families to grow as well
Where men long to take a bride

So rest assured, my friend
If you’ve some worries to unload
Just live the best life possible
And travel those country roads!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
