Title Remembering
Description He'd ride like the wind on a Clear simmer day Too short was the noon hour we had to tromp hay . -.i Our lunch hour Has spent mostly with a nap or a swia -. Soraetlnes I'd get In trouble clear up to my chin We'd rob bird aeste, an fight an till rattlesnakes : We'd read and enbroider and dream of dates ^ I'd build mud houses and dress angle worms too There were various things this family would do. s The farm had some sheds, a tin granary and all He even had a silo tall A house, one room, with a well so deep * Our dad would pump water for all his sheep. My dad had a shop where time I liked to spend I'd take all his nails and flatten the end Sometimes it looked like a knife or a fork To me it was a real mastery of art Sometimes I'd fashion a real fine spoon Now that's what we did with spare time at noon. The sugar beets, Hunt-m-m-n ¦- J] We blocked them, thinned them, weeded and topped "1 Then over again, it just didn't stop -a We worked with those things all summer long | Cone fall and the harvest we were glad they were gone. We picked up potatoes and helped thrash the wheat We had to do it, we all liked to eat ' There wasn't much we didn't do My sisters seven and my brothers two. . . .-.- .1 ™ -3 We bad one little brother I should mention to you That God decided to keep on his crew Ke was bom in Hay and died in June He really left us all too soon He was the first of all so we knew him not Hut if he had lived you could bet all you've got He'd been right in the middle for some mischievous plot ¦•£ A tease and a joker like the brother we've got. ' ^ We got our licfclns Oh! yes sir-ee ": But there was love and respect Right down to the wee ^ 4 Yes - I liked that house and its family tree With all the work that a family can be.
