An excerpt from todays "The Writer's Almanac". Go read the whole poem or listen to Garrison Kieillor read it...
The Writer's Almanac from American Public Media:
A hill, a farm,
A forest, and a valley.
Half a hill plowed, half woods.
A forest valley and a valley field.
Sun passes over;
Two solstices a year
Cow in the pasture
A farmhouse built of wood.
A forest built on bones.
The high field, hawks
The low field, crows"
