Does it sound dull, this way of life-
To spend all my years as a farmer's wife?
With a garden to hoe
and chickens to tend,
Dishes to wash and britches to mend,
Canning and cleaning and washings to do,
A husband to love
and some children, too,
Cows and kittens and trips into town,
Neighbors to talk with and help when they're down,
Fields to watch as the seasons go.
Should I ever leave this, I'd miss it so.
Guess I was made for this way of life,
I feel so right as this farmers wife!
