Mississippi Is...

Mississippi is…

Oh, I can remember when...
Gathering eggs still warm from the hen
Sitting in Uncle Frank’s swing
Listening to the mockingbird sing
Watching the leaves fall with every little breeze
Chores all done, taking my ease
Yellow Sulphurs flitting about
Hearing the cicada announcing,
“I’m coming out”
Watching the clouds darken to the south
Hoping for a little rain, but not too much
to flood us out.
This is my Mississippi!
