in the country

   in the country
      fields of corn at dawn
      sparrows morning chorus
      awakes our day
      the hare skips and jumps amongst the hay

      the tractor ploughs the furrow fields
      the farmer sits down to his morning breakfast meal
      the church bell rings out across the dell
      all is well in dorset

      the pastor prays his common prayer
      the congregation gathers
      their love to share
      the village clock its chimes the hour
      the daffodils reveal their flower
      the barn is full

      the cows are in the Meadows sweet
      the chickens pecking at my feet
      the cock does crow and the pigs they snort
      the magistrate goes off to court

      the village idiot wakes up for tea
      calls good evening to you and me
      the boys and girls are dressed for school
      and Mary Jane cant find her shoe

      the sun is bright up in the sky and all your dreams they hurry by
      the poet rises from his bed and wonders of the thoughts within his head
      the swans are gliding on the river flow
      and now its time for work
      i have to go
