Walking the road with great grandson
« on: December 08, 2017, 06:15:38 PM »
Sometimes I wonder
if Uncle Remus is still around
walking the road, with his cane on the ground
he talked of brer rabbit,  and brer fox
he told the stories, about de critters a lot

I would sit by his fire
listen to his tales,
about Brer Rabbit an de wishin - well
my heart skips a beat
when I hear him talk.
well, suh, dey des natchully
can't tell im w'at make
the de diffunce 'twix' folks no mo,
dan dey kin tell'im de diffunce
'twix' de creaturs for sho

Folks don't understand
this kind of talk
but I understood on our long walks,
with a bluebird on his shoulder,
and his lost talk

Now, walking this road ,
with a smile on my face
still hearing, Uncle Remus,
tell about the laughing place.
