The country child


I reside in a house

Very near the wood

But I’d prefer to live in a street

If and when I could


The lanes are so quiet

And I do feel all alone

How I wish I could play

And not just sit and moan


I have no friends to play with

And so am indeed sad

The trees are high and tall here

I feel the situation’s quite bad


I wouldn’t know what to do

If it had not been for the flowers

And for the bees and birds

That adorn the neighboring bowers.


I wish I could go and live

Permanently in a town

See the buses pass by

And wear a silken gown


The neon lighted streets are a wonder

They are indeed a sight at night

And I intend going and seeing them

And watch the lights twinkling bright.
