Passed a cheery girl in a straw sun hat - a right-friendly face that I’d like to chat.
An old farm pop who gave a curt nod, rocking overalls on his worn-out bod.
I passed 6 ducks floating still and serene. Brown cows grazing on pastures of green.
Horses, donkeys, and dogs galore
Goats, sheep, and probably more…
I careened down steep hills; crawled up the other side. (Thank goodness, what I’m pulling isn’t very wide!)
I drooled over yard art, placed strategically. Made a mental list of what I’m coming back to see.
Then as I was sitting all chill, debonair…Here comes a fat yellow jacket out of thin air!
Believe you me, I quick took off my shoe-I was ready to show him a smart thing or two!
Nearly ran off the road tryin’ to swat and shift gears, he had me so distracted I plumb forgot to steer!
Stomped on the brake to avoid hitting a sign, swerved back quick, then hit the center line.
Eventually Mr. Bee crawled deep into a crack. He seemed to stay put so I relaxed and leaned back.
Passed a fellow farm wife out dragging the hay. The sun sure is shining; it’s a beautiful day!
Just another week on an Oregon farm..All’s well that ends well. No cause for alarm! 😄
