Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Daddy's Farm (challenge)
 

Each day started early
'fore the crack of dawn
chores were never ending
on my daddy's farm

Life back then was different
with family values strong
grampa played his fiddle
while mama sang along

Aroma filled the kitchen
awaking sleepy eyes
grandma keeping busy
baking apple pies

Cattle needed milking
at the break of day
eggs for breakfast, gathered
tossing bales of hay

Cow-chips scooped for garden
to fertalize the soil
vegatables for canning
were planted in a row

Us girls made beds, did dishes
brother's chopped the wood
filled the pots with water
carried from the brook

When evening sun had settled
dad in his favorite chair
around the supper table
he led us all in Prayer

Then early to retire
his day of work complete
stories told at bedtime
'fore we went to sleep

I'll always remember
the good times
with thoughts of yesteryear
reflecting back on mem'ries
can always bring
a tear


All stars challenge
'remember the good times'
