Title A Tale of Terror
Description Around, beneath your feet sweet-scented hay, A young boy listening to a close friend talk that day About things he had never talked about before; Landmarks on the mountain slopes, and more- How to mow a straight line in a long field of hay, "Look between the horses' bobbing heads A bare spot on the mountain. Keep them all in view; He talked about the birds-all around: Kildeer running swiftly on the ground, Magpies, crows, blackbirds, mourning doves, and hawks, a choir; Meadow-larks sing solo, joyfully, brightly; Mourning doves sing (or weep) softly, quietly. I've remembered those sweet songs, those scenes, these many years, And the friendliness between my father and me, (Like the friendship that binds earth and grass and tree) On that long-past summer day, and the clear and certain way He knew and so did I, without being told, That this one day, for us, was something great, Though I was only ten years old, and he was fifty-eight.

A big old diamond-back rattle snake was lying coiled up in the road -37-
