 Getting Out Of My Own Way

I get this feeling

This is an ode to the area I live in expressing my gratitude for its beauty and peace. It was published in a regional paper. This first time I have been in print!!!!

I get this feeling
Often so serene
It comes over me
Whenever I am on the green

I get this feeling
Like the whole world
Should be this clean
On Barbour Rock
It's hard to be mean

I get this feeling
All around this place
Walking on Main Street
Seeing a familiar face

I get this feeling
Whether at work or play
That others know it too
They all seem to feel the same way

I get this feeling
When swimming in Pine Creek
The presence of something
Any day of the week

I get this feeling
When I am happy or sad
It often makes me take pause
And always makes me glad

I get this feeling I am at home
