Country Girl

Just Recently Taken 021

I’m just a country girl at heart,

love to embrace nature –

with my heart and soul.

Give me a day full of sun,

nature at my feet

and like a little child,

I go skipping down the lane.

Summer living,

barefoot in the green grass,

even when thunderclouds come,

I sing my song and dance in the summer rain.

What a wonder all of that is –

born and raised in the city,

like a bird in a gilded cage.

Moments spent among the dirt and pollution,

never a way to see the joy of nature at play.

Give me a country road,

no highways for me

Let me see the stars up above –

not obscured by neon lights.

Fresh air, fresh dreams,

animals running free.

I’m a country girl at heart –

mountains, rivers, clouds drifting by,

all a feast for my eyes.

Dancing under the stars above,

sun drenched days,

down by a lazy river.

Oh, what joy! Oh, what bliss!

Give me a country day anytime –

I’m a country girl at heart

  1. Oh yes. Country for me too.
    Luckily my city isn’t big, and the country is close.
