The Sights and Sounds of Country

Chirping birds, barking dogs,
Flowing streams, chopping of logs,
Nowhere to go, no need to hide,
Little markets on the pier side,
Children laughing, clear skies,
Perhaps a walk, perhaps a bike ride.
Narrow lanes, no vehicles nigh,
Time passes slowly, I wish it’d stop ticking by.

Ice-cream shops on winding roads,
Cottages for room and board,
The village pub and antique stores,
Neighbors and friends’, laughter galore
Leave you wanting just a little more.
Locals greeting very stranger in sight,
The evening sun settling into night,
The weekend gone, I wish it’d stop slipping by.
