Instructions: On Unlined paper write the following poem:

“Country Scene” by Linda Ori

The busy spider spins his web
Behind the outhouse door
While lazy shadows lengthen
On the dusty wooden floor; 

In the barn the hay lies warm
Beneath the sloping roof, 
While horses swish the flies away
With tails and stomping hoof; 

The hens are clucking busily
While chicks run all around, 
And rolly polly piglets
Snort their noses on the ground; 

A gong heard in the distance
Calls workers home to dine, 
While mother with her basket
Takes the laundry from the line; 

Soon the porch will come to life
With tea and lemonade, 
And rockers gently rocking
'Neath the overhanging shade; 

The golden wheat is waving
In the field behind the house, 
The apple trees are buzzing
And the cat has caught a mouse; 

Life in its simplicity
Lies peaceful in this place, 
There's time to smell the roses
Blooming grandly in their vase.
