From Dawn till Sunset

It's the country way of living
Rise and shine at dawn
Grab a cup of coffee
The frost still on the lawn

The horses in the pasture
The windmill whirling too
Ah yes, it's country living
So much there is to do

But you always find the time
To visit down the road
Sit and chat about problems
That are part of the farming load

Fences always to repair
To keep the animals in
Prayers at the end of the day
To keep out anger and sin

This is the kind of life, my friend
And the blessings that you get
When your world is the country
From dawn till sunset!

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
