Five Days in Ohios' Amish Country

by Pauline L. Stillman
(Pembroke Pines, Florida, USA.)

From July fifteenth to the nineteenth
We visited Ohios' Amish Country
Traveling by motor-coach from our hotel
To Holme's County unique community

Holstein cattle grazed the undulating landscape
Storing food in their four stomachs to yield
Milk for the farmer and his growing family
Percheron horses were picturesque in the fields

Wholesome breakfasts at Amish family homes
Where children with angelic voices
Sang acappella in German and English
Some popular songs of their own choices

Straw-hatted men and women wearing 'coverings'
Horse and buggy as their transportation mode
With their beautiful children in-tow
Created a delightful scene on the road

Our visit to the largest population of 'Plain People'
Brought us joy beyond our expectation
An experience we will treasure forever
As we pray that God will Bless our great nation.
