Homestead Memories

By Fred Appelhanz

 Homestead Memories


With bliss as my partner,

I have happily trod

in all types of weather,

many a mile, many a rod.


Mending the fences,

digging pesky weeds.

Whatever was necessary,

tending to Nature’s needs.


Thirty fertile acres,

gave us organic meat.

Fresh, wholesome vegetables,

and wood for our heat.


This beloved homestead,

was our children’s playground.

Birds sang ageless songs,

mixed with farming sounds.


At the day’s conclusion,

we savored magical sunsets.

Deep within our hearts,

we keep no regrets.
