Back country lanes
lead to nature’s acclaim
when lilacs deliver their show
They bloom in May and colour-up our day,
As the gardens start to grow.
Lilacs’ deep purple and soft violet tones
Line the lane that leads us to home…
To Pye Acres, and all the pastimes we dabble-in
The outdoor life we adore, started half a century or more
Thanks to our dear neighbour, Madeline.
Apple trees are in sight with their petals of white
Before they reveal the fruits of their yield.
In the summer ahead, apples turn red
And serve deer hunting adventures afield.
That pre-Confederation Barn
Braved years of weathers’ harm
But stands stoically in a late May fog.
It’s historical charm, from early days of farm is accented in apple blooms, lilacs and log.
Back country roads
Deliver life’s purest loads
of stories that come from our land.
Spring lilacs that bloom are gone too soon
Like the precious time we have in our hands.
