A country meadow

     A country meadow
White clouds rolling o’er the countryside 

In the hedgerows songbirds do abide

Grassy meadows bound by evergreen 

Painted beauty of a rural scene.
Wildflowers amid lush grasses grow

In gentle breezes flutter to and fro

A home for insects, bees and butterflies

Uncut haven where nature can survive.
On the headland chestnut trees stand tall

Shelter for the livestock lest rainfall 

Time will soon be here to mow and reap

Hay and fodder for the winter keep.
Now alas such sights are seldom seen

Concrete walls replace the verdant green 

Farming in the past was countrywide

For natures sake let not tradition slide.
