Sindersneed the Millipede,

We named him as he feeds.

Slowly he moves and he often grooves

Little burrows through the leaves.

 

Now Billy-bo the crazy Crow

Sits on the farmer's weather-vane

Making noise at the men in the field,

Those Scarecrows in the rain.

 

Then there's Bolt the farmer's Colt

That we can't catch, any old way.

He runs around the Farmer's meadow

Until he naps in the heat of the day.

 

Nana-Oat the barn-yard goat

Likes to hide behind the tool shed

And when you bend over, wham, it's over

She knocks you down with the butt of her head.

 

There is strange going on from morning 'til dawn

Out in the country, near rivers and farms,

It has different places from our usual spaces

And kind of fun if you look for it's charms.

 

So we travel out here, each and every year,

To visit with family every Thanksgiving.

Two weeks in this place tries hard to erase

Sharp edges formed by city living.
