Featured Writer: Joe Black

Summers Past

Piglets suckling on the sow
Aunty milking at the cow
Cockerel crowing in the barn
Uncle spinning us a yarn.
Lifting water from the well
Sunday morning churchyard bell
Golden corn and tilling fields
By the pleasant pasture yields.
On the bog, drink cold tea
A place you always want to be
Scent the beauty in the air
Freedom captured now so rare.
Just a memory now alas
Different era, different class
Softly spoken soothing words
Too busy now to hear the birds.
