Zippy Countryside

Zippy Countryside

A Poem by Ramya
"

I have always loved country life...the people, food, animals, cottages, roads and the green. Everything about it is so enticing!

"

Mad rush at all times,
Skyscrapers mundane,
Where money and power
Is a zillion dollar game.

Far from this world,
Far from this fame,
Awaits paradise green,
Of corrals and game.

Up in the mountains, 
Down the steep hill,
Round and round lake placid, 
With barbecues and a grill!

Cows, goats, chickens and pigs,
I love farm animals and their funny gigs!
Riding on horses, sombreros tall,
Grandma’s pies, with pecans and corns.

Flowers aplenty, yellow and brown,
Teal and aqua, to match my gown.
Guitars and foot taps, the dancing, the glee,
Beers a dozen, an unchained spree.

This is the place
Where I want to belong,
Far from the urban,
Singing country songs!

I have lived from LA California with endless cement, to the now quaint countryside of northwest Arkansas in the US... Your words are a pure celebration of living free... unrestrained from the burdens and rush of the city life. Love the lyric feel of your write and truly agree with you!

Wonderful! It fills you with this sort of delightful glee... I can almost see the vast countryside right before my eyes when reading this! The clever rhymes in it make the poem dance, and the expressive words really paint a picture!

This has a world view that is often forgotten and brought it back to the world of the dead.

I like this it feels like a big party out by the bonfire, it makes me think of simpler times when life was easy.
