Norwegian Farmer’s Son…November 19th

November 19th…“DO YOU THINK YOU WOULD’VE FOLLOWED IN YOUR FATHER’S PROFESSION OF FARMING, IF YOU HAD STAYED IN MINNESOTA?”

Elliott may have been a farmer like his dad?

POEM – “I Should Have”   by N. Elliott Noorlun

I should have followed my father,

In choice of life career,

Of tilling the soil, in farmer’s toil,

Of the peaceful land so dear.

Elliott as a lighthouse keeper?

Or instead, A lighthouse keeper,

Alone with the beautiful sea,

With a seagull’s song, Naught can go wrong,

When it’s just the light and me.

The path of what may have been.

I’m a sojourner seeking solace,

Away from human strife,

What’er could have been, Tis the present I’m in,

In dealing with daily life.

A grreat goal!

So remember this goal,

As you seek your work,

Whether husband, child or wife,

Love what you do, To yourself be true blue,

And you’ll ne’er “work” a day in your life! 😉
