Country Life

Sketch an outline of a farm
where people live
with chickens
and a llama or two.

with a nice house
and a huge barn
full of hay. Trees short
and taller.

Show me how horses
run -- chickens strut
and llamas rush to defend
their territory.

Best of all -- a simple
gravel road inviting me
in off the beaten path
to a lady waiting
just for me. Do it quickly.
