Red Dirt Beauty


I’ve traveled those red dirt roads
As far as the eye can see
Relaxing as I go along
A special kind of life for me

Days flow so much smoother
Less bumps in the road it seems
The sun shines even brighter
And more vivid are my dreams

The flowers along red dirt roads
Have a special kind of appeal
Their colors so magnificent
The scent has a sweeter feel

Barns hold charm beyond words
Animals are happier there
Fields are fresh and green
The farmers truly care

And I just have to tell you how
Happy this life makes me
I hope you can see someday
The wonderful red dirt beauty!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
