Spring will be here soon
and how I am looking forward to it.
It doesn’t help
that now I live so close to the water.
Many people around here
go out on the frozen water
drill holes and fish.
They even drive vehicles out
on the ice which I feel is stupid.
Every now and then,
someone falls through the ice and drowns.
We still don’t know many people
in our new area.
People are not as friendly here
as they were at the farm.
I used to like it
when folk stopped in for coffee at the farm.
People just wave here
but never stop in,
though invited to.
I miss the farm a lot
after having lived there
With thanks to my mid-West cousins
