World of Country

My country drive was so relaxing
On this simple summer day
I stopped my work because
There was nothing I couldn’t delay

Wildflowers were everywhere
Their scent was in the air
Mother Nature at her finest
And she always wants to share

Old worn rail fences circled
Homesteads where I drove
They had that homey feel
As ‘round the fields they wove

A gentle breeze was blowing
I put the windows down
Because it was so important
To hear every country sound

Windmills dotted the land
I enjoy their movement so
I wish that I could see them
Everywhere I go

Sometimes I think we need to
Just stop right in our tracks
Enjoy the natural part of life
That just plain takes you back!
