Old Man's Beard

from by Evan Lyle Jensen



Running through the yard
Kicking gravel at the doors
In the barn and up the ladder
Fearless, of course.

Fifty-pound bales of hay
Too many to count them all.
Boys, birds, and cats all chatter
We were so small.

Stack them up so high
Bodies never sore
Swinging on the rope and soaring
But that was before.

Digging for our toys
Found some money under it all
Went to bed and woke up early.
Now we are so tall.
