Stormy Skies

The clouds are rolling in
The day is getting dark
The walk is black with rain
No sun to lend its spark

But plants are green with life
Sunflowers growing tall
The squash it vines and climbs
The borage tops them all

Lamb’s quarters grows all over
The kitchen garden thrives
The swale is filled with clover
The chickens all survive

It’s days like this I wonder
At all the things we’ve done
I marvel at our fortune
And how much joy we’ve won
