A Roundel poem about life on the farm. I grew up on a farm and have fond memories of it. I loved living in the country where you did not have to have a gun under your pillow. You could sleep with your doors open.

Life on the Farm

I wrote a poem earlier about life on the farm. I was aiming for a Roundel poem. Somebody informed that my poem did not meet the qualifications for a Roundel. So he helped me rewrite it. It is now a true Roundel. It discusses life on the farm. I grew up on a 198 acre farm. I loved it except in the winter when we had to cut wood for heat. Then I nearly froze to death! In the summer though I was always running in the woods to pick berries and gather apples in the orchard. Life was fun down on the farm!


Life is fun down on the farm
Though the work is hard often
Folks know how to turn on the charm
Life is fun!

Farmers feed the people on the boulevard
They never do anybody any harm
Farmers hold others in high regard.

Life is simple and without alarm
One can sleep without a gun
With a smile that can disarm
Life is fun.

Simple living is best suited for most and farming makes us remain close to nature. However, everyday more people are moving away to cities. Thanks for the share, Marvin - siva

Thank you Siva. I bought a house in the city but I would love to be on a farm.
