Old Country Settings - Poem by Marilyn Lott

You know, the different structures
That were created in the past
Were done the best possible way
It’s amazing how long they’d last

Sometimes they were built
Partially into the ground
Sturdy enough and functional
If not the prettiest around

But they always served their purpose
Housed beast and human as well
All that really mattered
Was a place in which to dwell

And don’t you love the windmills?
So tall and beautiful to see
Nothing more relaxing to watch
With a house, a barn and tree

When you drive across the country
Take notice of the dwellings around
I enjoy so very much
Old country settings I’ve found!
