Lost Iowa Barn
I love the old barns in Iowa.
I love the craftsmanship,
I love their character,
I love the uniqueness.
Wouldn't you have loved
to have seen this barn
just after it was built,
with a farmer and his family
beaming with pride,
knowing how much this barn
will mean to their livelihood?
Sadly, we're losing these barns.
This barn no longer stands.
Did the wind and weather take it?
It was bulldozed.
The barn boards weren't salvaged.
One morning it was there,
that night it was gone.
In it's place will be 54 condominiums.
And we call this "progress."
