June 20th………“GRANDPA, DID THE ANIMALS ON YOUR FARM SMELL? WASN’T THAT NASTY TO YOUR NOSE”??
POEM – “The Smell Of The Farm” created by N. Elliott Noorlun
The smell of the farm, Can do no harm,
To a boy who grew up there.
I slowly drive by to sniff, A great big whiff,
Of powerful bovine air.
Reminds me of Dad, Who told this lad,
“Don’t ya like the smell, my Sonny”?
“For me it’s fine, And I’ll not whine”,
“Cause that’s the smell of MONEY”!!! 😉
For some it’s ALARM, At the smell of the farm,
Their nose they close quite tightly.
They quickly berate, And might even hate,
What to them is soiled and unsightly.
But to me there’s a charm, With all things on the farm,
Its hard workers do feed our great nation.
So I’m here to tell, I breathe deep that farm smell,
Bringing memory’s sweetest elation!!! 😉
