Life on a Farm

IMG 8536Life on a farm is tough,

It looks at you with a cruel smile.

Life on a farm is rough,

It’s hard to go that extra mile.


Life on a farm is peaceful,

It can bring you great joy.

To watch life become fruitful,

Is essential to every girl and boy.


IMG 8546Life on a farm is draining,

Sometimes you want to give up.

It can be hard, dark and straining,

And sometimes you feel stuck.


I love my life on a farm

With all my many legged friends.

I am their shepherd, I keep them from harm,

My love for them never ends.


IMG 8587This is my home!

It’s where I belong!

And I’m never alone,

Among the bird song.


Never take me away from here!

It would surely do me harm.

Even as hard as things may appear

I love my life on a farm!
