"Remembering" by Kay Dondero with Lauren McBride

"Simplicity" Ink on Paper
By J. Artemus Gordon

How much simpler 
life was along dirt roads
beside fields of flowers, 
Dad's cows in the pasture,
growing up with warm milk 
on oatmeal in the morning; 
not knowing what fear was. 

By Kay Dondero with Lauren McBride

Poet's Notes: Today's kids grow up in a fast-paced world bombarded with electronic entertainment. I wonder sometimes if they could slow down long enough to enjoy "watching the grass grow." My aunt, Kay Dondero, remembers a simpler time and wrote the inspiration for this poem nearly word for word in an email she shared with me recently.
