“The White Barn”

“The White Barn”

Up on a hill sits a lovely white barn,
Being rebuilt on an old family farm.

No tractor is plowing, no cows in these fields
Land sitting quiet, where once crops brought in yields.

I come here to sit, among grasses so tall,
To watch and take photos, thinking of farm life and all.

I can picture where children once played on the farm,
Maybe they helped stock hay in this barn.

The strong wind whispers, as it blows through the grass,
Of times that may come and how quickly they pass.

My time here is done, no longer can I stay,
Farewell for now, till comes another day!

“Barn of White”

Among many other types of structures, barns are one of my favorites. Somehow the most common color that I see used on barns seems to be red, if any color, or paint if used at all.
I came across this barn and other buildings and was struck with its beauty. Someone had done such beautiful work on this and the others matching it.
It certainly has a picturesque feel to it. The field leading up to, and surrounding it. The woods behind and to it’s side, and the stormy way the clouds hung over the entire area.
It was enough to make me stop the car, turn round in the middle of the road, and get out for a good long look and a few shots, which was all I was able to do, then it started to rain. I imagine this whole area would be gorgeous in autumn in a blaze of color!!
What a backdrop that would make for this lovely barn in white!!
