SOUTHERN LIFE IMG_1083

If you want a glimpse of Southern life,
Come close and walk with me;
I’ll tell you all the simple things,
That you are sure to see.
You’ll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,
Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees;
Caterpillars on the step,
Wooden porches cleanly swept;
Watermelons on the vine,
Strong majestic Florida pines
Rocking chairs and back yard swings
Junebugs flying on a string
Collard greens and Barbecue
Fried green tomatoes,
 Fried pies and pickles too.
There’s ice cold tea that ‘s syrupy sweet,
 And cool, green grass beneath your feet;
Catfish nipping in the lake,
And fresh young boys on the make.
You’ll see all these things
And much, much more,
In a way of life, that I adore.
