Country Boy Living

Country Boy Living!

Lived have l, in the big towns and the noisy cities,
And they were okay but lacked simplicity,
I am at my best it has to be said,
Surrounded by nature’s pastures spread,
Give me the green of the countryside any day,
Where l can smell good living and that raw bouquet,

Open rolling fields under a vast window of the sky,
Waking in the morning to that, and l know l am alive!
Gone for me now is the clutter of noisy living,
Look back, not do l, with any severe misgivings,
Every day, l see such wondrous views,
Rarely now do l ever feel saddened or even remotely blue,

No truer peace for my weary and tired soul,
Have l found but here, for now, l am again whole,
Walking down flower-covered tracks and back lanes,
It makes me calmer in thought and eases my pain,
Unbeknownst to many that once l was a busy city man,
For now, l enjoy country boy living and am a huge fan!

How can one not see true beauty here amongst the green,
Where the air is of the purest quality and so, so clean,
Meadows that stretch before my eyes for miles,
Tranquil scenes of such splendour bring me to smile,
Feeling that at long, long last, l am finally at home,
That now l have genuinely found where l belong.
