Barn Song (c. 1982, age 10)

In the barn door
Across the barn floor
It's time to do the
Barn chores
Hey! Get som
Hay for the horses
And the cow
Please get some
Don't forget the
Seeds for the
Little Chicks
Nick! Make sure
The seeds aren't
There! The
Barn chores
Are done.

This is the first poem I remember writing. I made it up while playing in a patch of dead iceplant beside our house at Ft. Ord.
