In the Country

Outside of time
This rural life divine
Following the seasons
But no human reasons

Hunger and thirst
Growing things first
Fewer reliabilities
Separate undeniabilities

Perhaps I prefer not unto be tread
Or enjoy the birdsong's casual thread
Whichever the season
I have my reason

This plays slows down the time
A natural redefinition of divine
Conquering hungers and thirsts
Fawn and fox kit walking firsts

After a while
I need urban style
My more crowded reason
Headed toward city season
