Grandparentís Old Barn

 By Sean Thomasson



Wind blowing through the broken door


Playing hide and go seek


Hiding in the old tractor


Which hasnít ran in ten years


Its bright red body rusty rims and ripped seats


Listening to the owls


Seeing the bats flying around


Bumping into the tool box


Finding our cat catching mice


The creaky barn floor with the crunch leaves on it


Laying on the hay


Getting stuck in the hay


The mouse squeaking so loudly


Grandparents finding the photo album from their wedding
