Well, I'd woke up early
just about the crack of dawn
last crickets chirping loudly
heavy dew carpetin' the lawn
cold air, ya know
can see my breath that time of mornin'
as the tired furnace is a kickin' in
Emmmm hmmm, well dat'
woodstove she's a squirmin' with anticipation!
smell of the incomin' weather
fresh cut and stacked Maple, except them box elder type you know gettin'
Oak too, yut
some Birch ...burns real pretty
I hear them pumpkin patches callin'
eager to win those hearts
and the children
funny duffers in costumes
Ya, beckonin' a reckonin' they are
to become silky pies in their namesake
a big ol' mess left in that wake
& roasted an toasted
seeds of joy we use all win'ter 'round here
Kinda like the sound of them tires on the pavement ya know?
they're rustlin' down asphalt
with the leaves
visitors headed home again
will give way to the sloshin' of sleet, freezin' rain
Well here comes the ol' horses
and a wooden cart
to collect the trash
Percheron prizes them beauties
I really like that sound too
hoves clunkin' in perfect harmony
love this place indeed
clip clopin' along with jinglin' bells soon
straight outta' Robert Frost he is
A symphony of smells
the ringin' of the church bells
time to eat
"Well...take a seat
Oh Momma's up
Fill up her cup!
Oh thank you kindly
Well, we got some perfectly cooked hickr'y smoked local bacon
Scrambled eggs so beautiful and fluffy they look like clouds of clear yellow sunshine on that plate
those girls did well this year
Maple yogurt I insist on
with that crunchy homemade
sweet n' salty nut Granola
Don't forget some fresh fruit salad
stuff goin' on now
rest been reserved for winter days
Can't say that I'm not lookin' forward
to some wild blueberry pancakes
and that beautiful amber
Vermont maple syrup"
was a lotta' work drainin' those sleepin' veins of golden sugar
Is a great mornin'
"Good to savor the wonderful gifts the seasons bring, share and enjoy "
We certainly are grateful ma'am.
Take Your Hat Off What's The Hurry?
Just because...some people say "Yut" silencing the T here not everyone of course, I love old time Vermonter's they know everyone and everything!
