Turkey, quail, pheasant,
venison, rabbit or even squirrel from our woods,
or trout from the creek just past Pappap’s
as the main dish.
Potatoes, corn, tomatoes, lettuce, onions,
cucumbers, green beans, yellow squash
from our garden as the sides.
Elderberries, grapes, Siberian crabapples,
rhubarb, blueberries and blackberries,
walnuts, hickory and hazel nuts
picked right out of our yard to make
homemade jams and jellies,
cookies, cobblers and pies for dessert.
Nothing like a fresh country meal.
