A Perfect September Evening

Mowing the grass,
Shoveling manure,
Administering vaccinations,
Walking dogs,
Weeding the garden,
Grooming dogs and horses,
Canning tomatoes,
Leading horses to pastures,
Monitoring pastures,
Catching roosters,
Disinfecting water buckets.

The chore list doesn't seem that bad,
as I sit on the back porch,
wearing jeans, sweatshirt and wool socks,
reading a book,
drinking a beer,
surrounded by three dogs and three cats,
watching sheep and horses graze,
and listening to the chickens murmur as they catch the last moths of evening.
