Vol.2..Norwegian Farmer’s Son..June 30th

June 30th………“WERE THERE PEACEFUL TIMES DURING THE WINTER ON YOUR FARM IN SOUTH CENTRAL MINNESOTA? WHAT IMPRESSED YOU DURING THOSE QUIET MOMENTS”?

POEM – “Star Smiles” created by N. Elliott Noorlun. I came across some lovely paintings of winter nighttime scenes on a farm. I mused upon the many exquisitely quiet wintertime moments I enjoyed as a boy while gazing for long periods of time at the vast diamond skies above me.

I could’ve sworn, My little boy eyes,

Could see that frozen star smile.

I knew, for a fact, That they all did wink,

As I gazed at their quiet for awhile.

With snow all around, And nary a sound,

As I stood in the frozen bliss,

While above our farm, In ethereal wonder,

Each star sent me down a kiss.

Our barn in the distance, Beckoned me,

To the warmth of bovine charm.

Yet, I gazed a bit more, To the night starshore,

Of a Winter’s beauty, There on our farm.
