Memories of an Old Barn
Old barn, what would you say if you could speak?|
Weathered boards bleached by sun's rays
Rusty nails bleeding through blistered paint
To many barn animals of yesterday, you were a saint!
Old barn, how time has shown your age.
Broken slats, knot holes and caved-in roof
Current 'home range' of a young barn owl
And an old sanctuary for grandma Baker's cow.
Old barn, remember when I came to play?
Years ago, as a child, I stayed up in the loft.
Me with my pet rabbit, sleeping in the hay
Oh my goodness, those were fabulous days.
Old barn, how I hear you creak at night.
When the wind blows and moon is high
It brings back many memories of long ago
Hide-and-seek I played until myself I could show.
Old barn, it is way past time for you to go.
A part of my life, you have been from the start.
I can't bear to see when they tear you down
So I plan not to be here as they take you apart
I am certain it will break my reminiscing heart!
