Life in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania

                      1
Clank “Gee! Haw!” clip clop
Our neighbor hitches his mules —
Time for spring planting

                      2
Laughing and splashing
the children try to capture
elusive tadpoles.

                      3
Wash line full of clothes
flapping in the gentle breeze —
neighbor spreads manure.

                      4
Ba boom! Ba boom! Boom!
Horse and carriage dances by.
Poor horse needs ear plugs!

                      5
Out planting garden,
neighbor stops to chat a bit,
I catch up on news.

                      6
Barn raisings, potlucks
faith, fellowship, tears, laughter —
patchwork of friendships.
