True serenity and peace of mind --
They say it is possible to find.
But, can it really be felt;
With this peace will I ever have dwelt? A few times it seems-
A blue norther is blowing through;
Pantry is full, and fireplace too.
Cattle and hay are snug in the barn;
Granddad is telling a whale of a yarn. The mail has not yet come, nor will it today.
Have you ever felt the sand and mud between your toes,
And watched the spring water pour into the creek as it glows?
The crawfish, tadpoles, minnows, and baby turtles vie for position,
And strive dutifully to complete their mission This adventure is extra special when you are only eleven.
