      I took a walk out in the woods, one cold and snowy day

      Dad’s old rifle ‘neith my arm still looked the same old way.

      Reminded me of when I was young, and the fun that we once had,

      walking through the woods together, the “old man” and this lad.

      “Not so old”, I seem to think as I hunt on our old lands

      Holding dad’s rifle as I go is just like shaking his hand.

      The gun has fond memories imprinted in it’s wood,

      Of old and simpler times, they were sweet and they were good.

      Wait! There’s my game! The animal I am stalking!

      Bang goes the gun, I hardly hear it, and the creature is not walking.

      I wish my dad could be here now to enjoy this days outcome,

      But I see my dad’s footsteps in the snow, and I am standing in them.

      Brings back the first hunt with my Dad and others after. How I got my father-in-law back into hunting too. Wow almost 55 yrs ago. afish4570
