In 1983

 

we lived
in a four room house,
without plumbing,
cooked mayonnaise biscuits
in a toaster oven
and shot outhouse snakes
with the landlord’s pistol.

The world sang
back then when
a creek bed was heaven
and climbing that bluff,
romantic adventure.
Romance,
Lord a mercy,
everything was romance

even two dollar bottles
of grape juice
because
nobody sold wine.

    I have a friend who has heard two different old folks talk about the music in the deep woods.
    Like it was something everybody heard .

    1. Is it possible that you could share those folktales with me? There are few things I like more than folktales. There is a music in the deep woods.
