Phillip Coffey - At The Ready
At The Ready by Phillip Coffey
Jotting down all of his lasting impressions on others-taking up to five minutes.
There was a time he could toss the hay in a dusty loft, seemingly
All day long, but never mind - days are much shorter now as he ages.
At the ready for a short period, that boy could spell words up to three syllables.
Changing direction, viewing the distant pass, remarkably still pretty steady.
Dad's exposed knuckles tapping on the bathroom door - his daughters knew
Full well that they had to turn off the water spicket - it is a dry summer.
Corn crops' leaves seen on the valley floors are curling eastwardly.
Much less rain to fall from the infrequent thunderstorms - life begins seasons changing
For those of us who depended upon a very limited supply of storage in a concrete cistern built
In the late fifties when indoor plumbing was installed, thinking it would fulfill for eternity all the needs.
Contact the Columbia Firehouse, requesting that they tote a water supply to the ridge for a few dollars
To get through the hard times of what would hopefully be a short dry spell, then less strict rules would be applied to clean up the hide for a spell.
