Countryscapes

April 7, 2010

Yesterday’s post offered some cityscapes.  So today I will give equal time to rural images.  What a contrast to the gleaming, shining, reflective glass and steel surfaces of a  modern city.  Yet each is beautiful in its own way. 

Old barn in the Skagit Valley

 

Weathered siding, old barn

Old Barn
by Janice Blanchard 

On the edge of the town
See the old barn sag
With a drop in its ridge
Like a sway-backed nag,
And the shingles torn
By the west wind’s will
Fly from the skeleton rafters
Until
You may count its starved ribs,
One by one;
Old barn, old horse,
Your day is done.
