Of Green Toads and Babbling Brooks

Don’t bother trying to find me
because I’ve gone away
I’ve run off to the country
to live out my remaining days.

I’ll walk a country road,
and pause by a babbling brook
I’ll laugh with a green toad
and read my favorite book.

  1. This is so freeing and charming Linda. Reminded me of Elton John’s ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,’ a song I seem to be playing on repeat at the moment. Sounds like a happy retirement to me!

  3. Beautiful words to savour the best of country living Linda! Sadly many can only dream of the joy and not really able to enjoy the fun!
