Slowly Pass

Posted: September 7, 2014 in free verse, poetry

We have wandered among the green fields,
on the open prairie and in the foot hills.
On the roads, we’ve worked with the tired and the weary.
For long hot hours we’ve worked for Saturday’s pay
and for the quenching of our thirst.
Under the summer sun with orange flags and hot oil
our purpose is clear.
Each wet steaming mile under foot is our goal.
To slowly provide a smooth ride
for the cool and the fast.
Look into the eyes of the sunburned.
Stare into the dark glasses of the sun blinded
as you wait and then slowly pass.
Long are our days
Long are our roads
Follow in our tracks as we spend our day.
