New Song for Open Mic

in Don's Writing

I’m learning a new song for Open Mic this week. I first heard the song at the WTHH Retreat I participated in last week. Dan sang, “The Field Behind the Plow” by Stan Rogers. Here is Rogers singing “The Field Behind the Plow.”

I like the song because of the details of rural life and the hope it contains.¬† “Put another season’s promise in the ground.” This is the first new song I’ve attempted to bring to Open Mic. I want to thank Dan for sharing this song with me and us. I also have a poem¬† from “Ulysses”, by Alfred, Lord Tennyson I plan to recite. I’m looking forward to this. Open Mic is scheduled for Friday, December 11, 2009 beginning about 7:00 pm at A to Z Books in Downtown North Platte.
