I desired to create a story that will simply amaze
the reader kicking back on cool cloudy days
in an abandoned barn under an owl's wise gaze.
This tale would include four cousins of mine
who lived in the country out past the city limit sign.
Each one wholly bucolic and bumptious by design.
For them a game of tag was to be a bruising affair
those not 'it' would hightail it on outta there.
Asked to join in this 'city cousin' never would dare.
