Lancaster Farm Poem & Painting

Lancaster Farm

painting by Judy Ringold (above) and poem by Stanley Fink (below)

 

Early morning rising sun

Illuminates

Farm house

Barn

Stables

All nestled

In the green shade of

Old Oak and Maple trees.

This place is

So quiet, serene and still

It seems frozen in time.

The harvest and livestock

Are safely sheltered

From rain and snow.

But the biggest threat

Is our own attitude.

This land is sacred–

We do not own it.

Ours only to borrow

To preserve for tomorrow.

 

Thanx to Judy & Stanley for their timely contributions! I am reading books on climate control and the environment, so this dynamic duo seems very timely.
