Well, it’s time to get back to this blogging business (though I can’t really say it’s a business since I’m not making any money off of it…). Sorry it’s been so long. The past month has been super busy with a major change in my life: I moved to Kansas City, MO. Yep, I’ve left the rolling hills and home of Kentucky and went west like all good legends. But don’t think that I left KY gleefully. It wasn’t an easy parting…here’s a poem to prove it:
A Farewell to Bluegrass
Dear Kentucky, land of my life and birth,
In your soil I was planted, you know all my days,
My roots dug deep and loved your rugged ways,
But now I tear myself from your earth.
Don’t you worry! How can I ever forget?
Your tall hills jagged with protruding stone,
Your peaceful woods, where one can walk alone.
Your charm makes sweet partings feel like regret.
I thought I knew you and knew your heart,
With winding rivers and deep-diving caves,
All those trees swaying like green waves,
But what secret have you that makes it hard to part?
Still out of your borders I must pass,
To find my fortunes and love in the far West.
From the hills to the plains I put my skills to test,
But let these lines be a fitting farewell to Bluegrass.
Hope you enjoyed it. Let me know what you think!
