Migrating Geese

Living out here in the country

In the hills all lush and green.

Each day I see the geese fly east

To a place I have not seen.


In the evening as the sun sets,

I hear that haunting honking cry

Heading west, to where they know best

And in passing they say - Hi!


I have often wondered why it is,

The geese do this every day

Then I remember it’s that time of year,

Soon they’ll be gone and on their way.
