Line prompt from POETS

Although I have traveled far and wide, I am never far from the Monongahela Valley. I am a second-generation American; the Old Countries are never far from me. The wood, and hills, rivers and “cricks” have given me an appreciation for nature.

     I slightly altered one of my favorite poems.for yesterday's prompt, and received some kind comments on it. It is one of my personal favorites, but for whatever reason, it is not in any of my book. Maybe it will be in the fourth manuscript!
