  • HIDE-A-WAY FARM : Author-Earline McEvers

  • , HERRIN, ILLINOIS
  • I’VE JUST BEEN TO HIDE-A-WAY FARM
    A RUSTIC PLACE, SO FULL OF CHARM.
    THE HOUSE CAN’T BE SEEN FROM OVER THE HILL
    AND EVERYTHING SEEMS SO PEACEFUL AND STILL
    BUT WHEN YOU REACH THE TOP OF THE RISE
    A RIOT OF COLOR MEETS YOUR EYES.
    THE HOUSE IS THE OYSTER, MINNIE’S THE PEARL.
    SHE’S JUST A REAL LIVE NATURE GIRL.
    FLOWERS ARE BLOOMING ALL OVER THE PLACE
    AND THERE’S MINNIE, A SMILE ON HER FACE.
    HER PEPPER TALK KEEPS YOU SPELLBOUND FOR HOURS,
    AS YOU WANDER AROUND AND TALK ABOUT FLOWERS.
    AND WHEN THE OLD CLOCK THAT SHE KEEPS ON THE SHELF,
    STARTS STRIKING “IT’S NOON” THEN YOU SAY TO YOURSELF–
    “WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE,–I’VE BEEN HERE TO LONG.
    MY HUNGRY HUSBAND WILL THINK SOMETHING’S WRONG!”
    SO YOU TAKE YOUR LEAVE, FEELING RESTED AND WARM,
    WHAT A DELIGHT——
    HIDE-A-WAY FARM!

, Marion Illinois 1982.
