The Young Farmer

He plows his harrowed fields—visions grand!
Lushly, planned, large yeilds;
Bugs frantically seeking shields
As farmers plant the hayfields.

    Thank you so very much for reading my poetry and taking time to leave your comment. I appreciate you more than you might imagine. I have really enjoyed these few days that I have had the opportunity to write and read some poetry here on the soup. It’s great to be able to do so and hopefully, it will continue. But…life is about to be hectic once again…soon. I send my love. Sincerely, Dane Ann
