Life in the country's a crazy, wild ride,@08/09/2019 Carol Welch
as we wait for the harvest and bloom;
but when the forces of nature collide,
our outlook can quickly be gloom.
The cute, furry squirrels have found they could climb,
the surprising, thick sunflower stem,
to eat up the birdfeeder's food in short time,
while breaking flowers and ruining them.
So, nature, besides joy, may bring disappointment,
if the flowers and fruit are our pride,
and our beauty loving souls may need ointment,
when fur and feathers and flora collide.
