The garden's got me tired,
James Taylor's got me mellow,
the rain's got me reaching
for consolation in yellow,
and some kinda consultation
with a fair-feathered fellow.

Will you forgive my absence?
'cause I just can't close my eyes
long enough to pull myself away
from the creek in its rise.
It's written somewhere in stone
and I can't compete with the wise.

The snakes got me standin' still,
the trees got me posin'
and usually now, these evenings
I stay right up till closin'
the full moon and silent stars
got me a little bit frozen.

Will you forgive my absence?
at least until the end of May
'cause I just can't close my eyes
long enough to pull myself away.

Will you forgive my absence?
I will surely be back home soon
if I can close my eyes just long enough
to pull out my favorite tune,
to tear myself away from the misty moon,

well...it just might take all June.

Sounds as though life is treating you well.
I sure hope so, Dixie!  

Good to read you, gal!

The one thing I DON'T miss Dixie girl, are those darn snakes. The first year I llived out in the country back in 1994, it seems like everytime we went out into the field, there were snakes.

Thanks everyone

I love these replies!

I guess I am too impatient. We only have dial-up internet out here and it's really annoying! The garden is really lots of work too. Maybe by August, I will have the garden picked clean and be able to get high speed internet. I do miss reading the poetry here.
