No Place Like Home (The Primordial Series)

No Place Like Home (The Primordial Series)

A Poem by Joshua777
"

Written unknown | Scenes from my land of origin

"

Home sweet home,

Where looking up the street,

I saw a vast field full of cows.

Home sweet home,

Where looking down the street,

Was a ride on the river of adventure,

Come with me, to my home,

My home sweet home.

 

Home sweet home,

Where the prettiest place,

Was the outdoors, full of tremendous trees

And pretty, pricey plants,

As polychromatic as a rainbow.

 

Home sweet home,

With two dogs, chained up, one sick,

The other dog, big as a log.

Home sweet home,

Where parrot roamed,

Though he was small and light,

He gave a pretty strong bite.

 

Home sweet home,

Where many noises flew around,

Coming from the chained up hounds.

Home sweet home,

Where wild animals roamed,

And lean, mean geese

Chased after me.

 

Home sweet home,

Where the ugliest place,

Behind my cousin’s house was terrible,

Since the smell was not bearable

And poop laid everywhere.

Home sweet home,

Where we played a game,

That wasn’t so lame,

Whenever we became bored.

Baseball was its name.

 

Home sweet home,

A very warm place,

Better than the cold-hearted United States.

Home sweet home,

No need for jackets or sweaters.

Only my favorite clothing,

The black spaghetti-string shirt.

 

Home sweet home,

Where a small pass, from us to school,

Is painted black by night and

Danger allows no one to pass.

 

I hope you enjoyed the ride,

On the river of adventure.

The river that took you,

To my home,

My home sweet home.

Background | A poem made in an "Introduction to Poetry" class in 9th grade. I describe scenes of the environment back in my homeland. And yes, I got bit by the parrot more than once, more than twice, even more than thrice, it wasn't pleasant. I was also scared of the geese.

I get sometimes nostalgia too. But I don't feel homesick. At my native land I don't get too much happiness . I think every country have like positive and also negative sides. Life itself can be very stressful no matter where you live. I like your details of rural and village life it's reminds me our house at country side. It's very calming picture . You certainly have talent for creating of impressive atmosphere .
