Jim Yerman Poems
Comments about Jim Yerman
I recently ran across a list Deborah and I created long ago
It contained the dreams for our perfect house...our ideal bungalow.
We called it our North Carolina Love Nest and it was to be our creed
For we thought, on this paper, we listed everything we'd need.
Everything to keep us contented, our personal honeycomb
Everything our minds could think of...to make a happy home.
We were young and innocent back then...and our dreams...unlimited and grand
But despite our best intentions...life didn't go the way we planned.
You see we never built our dream ...
A Country Song
If you spend any time in the mountains it doesn’t take very long
After turning on the radio to hear a country and western song.
Country music is often as sweet as listening to the birds
Not only can you catch the beat but you understand the words.
Country music has recurring themes at least from what I hear
For instance if you sing about a tractor, it’s got to be John Deere.
