Take Me Back, Poetry by H.A. Handy

Take Me Back
By H.A. Handy
Copyright 2006 by H.A. Handy

Take me back, Shayne, take me back
To Low Gap Mountain way up high.

Sissy, I can't - it isn't the same,
Everything has changed there from the way it was.

Take me then, where the mountains roll
Like endless waves upon the land.

Take me to where you can see the sky,
Blue as any sea

Where the hawks circle and cry as they pass
That greeting I dream of in my sleep.

Take me back, Shayne, take me back,
Back on top of the Kentucky hills
To where my soul can rest a while.
