Delbert’s Barns - Poem by Marilyn Lott

I’d like to tell you about Delbert
A guy who loves old barns
He sees the very best in them
Their uniqueness and their charms

Old barns are such a treasure
And as you study each of them
Not only out but also the inside
Shows why each one is such a gem

Many different designs and colors
Some dark and worn and brown
Delbert finds the excitement
In every barn that he’s found

Old fences are just important
As the barn is, don’t you think?
Part of where the animals were
Like an old bathtub where they’d drink

Moss-covered roofs through the years
Boards falling off one by one
Cold winters take their tole as well
Paint has peeled by the blazing sun

So if you have some questions
And enjoy old rustic farms
Why, you can just ask Delbert
He has a collection of old barns!
