I am a country girl stuck in the city, for the time-being. I enjoy the country way of life, and practice that in my home as best I can by canning and preserving foods, cooking and baking from scratch, crocheting, living vicariously thru the many blogs I follow about country life. I enjoy learning about raising livestock, and glean from my past employment and personal experiences of working with animals to fuel some of my postings. I have 5 cats, who keep my life interesting. And I am also an amateur poet. Thanks for stopping by and checking out this Farmer-gal who is caught in town, for now.
Back in the Fall of 2004, I went back to college, and got a minor in English, studying mainly poetry. Here is one of my favorite poems by one of my favorite poets. It's a well known poem, I think, and is often quoted in poetry circles because of its simplicity.
