Hello Fall


A body of straw, a flannel shirt
And a pair of jeans covered in dirt.
I stand for hours under the sun
And fight a war without a gun.

To protect the seed and watch it grow
That's my purpose, it's all I know.
By the corn and wheat I have my place.
I don't run or walk, I won't give chase.

Upon my post in a farmers stance
I wait for them to take their chance
To swoop down below and steal some crop
See my shadow and let it drop.

I the scarecrow scare crows.

Hope everyone has a very blessed first day of Fall.

  10. How sweet!! I have to worry about deer getting into my garden more than crows. I left a shirt hanging near the garden to keep them out. Now that acorns are dropping from the oaks, there are two does in the yard each morning.

    Have a beautiful Friday friend.

  12. I love the poem! Autumn is my favorite time of the year. My sister in IN (Karen @ Lily Valley blog) and I were reminiscing about the colorful maple trees at our childhood home earlier this week!
