The Good Lord willed, and the creek did rise!
And the rains came down and the floods went up...
and there was a little Mississippi in our yard!
Then we got the classic Southern winter storm, no snow but ice!
It makes everything so pretty, the only kind of crystal a country girl wants!
The horses paid the storm no mind,
just as long as they got their way, I mean hay!
A glassy canopy over our chert road...
all the way home again.
