Grandma on the Farm

grandma on the farm

wearing a checkerboard

apron

canning fruit

a life of cowboy

boots

blue jeans

and calloused hands

fighting for the

Promised Land

grandma on the farm

the old days

and the

old school ways

daddy was a miner

coal gravesites

mine shafts and

Kentucky blue

soils

water boats

and American flags

dogs that bark

and bacon n' eggs

for tired legs

apple jelly and

grape juice

grandma once

shot a Moose

wrinkled and weathered

hot dogs and mustard

grandma was a fight

died at 99

The words dance at my tongues tip

And at the front of my brain

Just waiting to express

My joys, my pain

 

But they always keep dancing

Bottled, now they may be

My feelings want out

But they shall never be free
