Country Boy Living!
Lived have l, in the big towns and the noisy cities,
And they were fine, but lack simplicity,
I am at my best it has to be said,
Surrounded by natures’ pastures spread,
Give me the green of the countryside any day,
Where l can smell good living and that raw bouquet,
Open rolling fields under a vast window of sky,
Waking in the morning to that and l know l am alive!
Gone for me now, is the clutter of noisy living,
Look back not do l, with any serious misgivings,
Each and every day do l see such wondrous views,
Rarely now do l ever feel saddened or even remotely blue,
No truer peace for my weary and tired soul,
Have l found but here, for now l am again whole,
Walking down flower covered tracks and back lanes,
Making me calmer in thought and eases my pains,
Unbeknownst to many that once l was a busy city man,
For now l enjoy country boy living and am a huge fan!
How one cannot see true beauty here amongst the green,
Where the air is of the purest quality and so, so clean,
Meadows that stretch before my eyes for miles,
Tranquil scenes of such splendour bringing me to smile,
Feeling that at long long last, l am finally at home,
That now l have truly found where l belong.
Working with and watching the horses that l attend,
Allows me the freedom to dream and more importantly to mend,
Country living comes with a serenity of its very own,
That cannot be found in the city or any town,
Now all need to do to make my life totally complete,
Is to find me a country girl, who is loving and is so sweet,
I have dated glamour girls, and those of next door,
But it is a country girl l am a needing now to love and adore,
One who like me, enjoys the brush of the countryside air,
Not afraid of the wind nor of the rains in her hair,
Who knows how to have a good time and is carefree,
Rich in spirit, and is as laid back, now like me!
