Tried and True

This is just a poem I wrote a few years ago....mostly I just jotted down my "dreams". It's not written perfect, as I wrote it very quickly as I thought of what I wanted in life. I hope you enjoy!

Tried and True

 
Up in the mountains,
Far from the sea.
In a little farmhouse,
I hope to forever be.
 
With the pig, cow and chicken,
All living off the land.
With my husband and children,
Holding onto my hand.
 
Bread in the oven,
Baby in my arms.
Life is wonderful,
Out on the farm.
 
Momma, Daddy,
Little boys and girls.
Overalls, straw hats,
Ribbons and curls.
 
Church on Sunday,
Bible in hand.
Jesus in our hearts,
Footprints in the sand.
 
Hard times come,
Good and bad.
But we face them together,
Children, Mom and Dad.
 
All these give joy,
To me and to you.
All these little things,
Tried and true.

God's Peace, Marita
