A tender story..of coming of age.

The Fields

The sun’s nightly journey
Down life’s long rambling road

The picked fields cleaned and tilled
The musky soil still warm

A farm-hand sleeps, dreaming
Of a distant lover 

Short Farm poem by William Robinson| Details |


A farmer owned a farm in Iowa.
In vain, he toiled and labored every day.
He'd pick his corn and shuck it,
And pour it into buckets;
Then crows would steal the corn and fly away.

pale silken strands sway
tickling the warm breezy air
honey wheat wands dance

It's Norm, Down on the Farm

Who parachuted into an alligator farm
      He said with a hell of a shout

Before I'm the calm before their storm

It’s a Miracle!

There once was a drifting skydiver.
He looked down below with grave terror.
He was falling in a tarn.
At an alligator farm –
So he prayed, then he ran on the water!

Show and Tell

Stale, summer

Boiling in this
Skin bath
Are you and I. 

An obsession, 
Now a memento
Of dark complexion, 
Stiffened surprises. 

I burrow into the 
Pill case now
With no more than 
An ant farm
In my pocket.

On The Southern Alligator Farm

Down south on the small alligator farm
Alligators grown to size to alarm
All the workers there too scared
Of young gators as they aired
Parachuted food to keep them from harm

Noon time Watch

flowers bloom 
their fragrances spread through the farm...
noon time watch

humming birds perch
on the flowers for nectar...
wings flapping

(This is a fictional poem)

You're making a peanut butter sandwich with sardines.
That's one of the grossest things I've ever seen.
Now you're putting marshmallows and gravy on it too.
I'm going to call the funny farm on you.

A Winter Eve's Illusion

Beneath the vibrant orange-red of sky
and a yellow spot of sun dropped low,
a farm’s snow-topped structures in the
clearing of a wintry woods
are huddled as if to
draw some warmth from this
brightest part of 
a short-lived

The Lettuce Workers

The Lettuce Workers

Somewhere in California
a midnight one-eyed bus shoots

lettuce farm past lettuce farm
to abutment and a kiss. 
Now the morning papers cry 

15 sleeping Mexicans
glowed an hour or more.

To Farm A Sea

there once was a man who farm-a-sea
he was the king of all he give his seed
but there was no trust between us
because he was just a devil in
a winterized coat giving with a
power of degree to do harm
and no one will see...

Short Farm poem by Elly Wouterse| Details |

Memories and Yuletides

on the little farm 
lots of young rabbits conquered
grandsons' heart and soul

grandpa and grandson
spoiled them up to winter's end
while the years passed by

a cherished flashback
excluding grandson's Yuletides 
when rabbits were gone

Grandpa's Prayer Chair

Grandpa’s chair still there

though stables are empty now

ghostly echoes of neighing

still hear Gramps praying

“Please, Lord, let me keep my farm”

blessings bestowed on our clan

A Sweating Cow


                                                   through the farm
                                                   a sweating cow seeks her calf —
                                                   charcoal burns

Grandparnts' Farm

Working on grandparents' farm
Build som muscle - there's no harm!

Feed the calves; horses hay
Think I'm enjoying every day!

There sure is a lot to do
Feeding and riding to name a few!

When all the work is said and done
I'm just weary to the bone!

Short Farm poem by Dr.Ram Mehta| Details |

Lawmaker Loopholes

Think of George Orwell's Animal Farm
"All animals are equal but some claim
More equal than the other"
Out of a sow's ear
A silk purse can't be made, all the same.

Joyful Anarchy

        gramps' farm cottage, photogenic,

       exudes  country  quaintness, scenic,

         but wait till his grandkids arrive,

             bedlam it'll be, a mad hive,

            what to us may be anarchic,

            for gramps,  joyfully chaotic!

Short Farm poem by Gayle Campbell| Details |

Autumn Yarn

Like a knitted farm blanket,
September's sun covers us.
Rolled up yarnballs are
haybales stacked and stored.
Click-clacking needles echo
horses' hooves, hurried hush.
Summer unravels like a glitch
in the pattern, only to become
a loop in the autumn purl.

Short Farm poem by Bob Quigley| Details |

Rust ic

The once rich fields lay fallow now Spared of the harrows blade Abundant crops but memories The grasses long since hayed The old farm tractor, silent now Still sadly stands in wait Dressed in a red brown coat of rust Unyielding to it's fate

Short Farm poem by Robb A. Kopp| Details |

My Momma

Soft and tender voice
you protected me from harm
spoiled me rotten

hands soft as cotton
You weren’t father’s first choice
you won him with charm

Soft and tender voice
raised us on the farm
spoiled me rotten

FROGS AND DOGS - (Tongue Twister poetry)

Four fearsome frogs fought fourty dogs for fun in foggy weather

the fourty dogs and fearsome frogs alarmed poor fred the farmer

If fourty dogs fought four fearsome frogs in fog on fred's old farm

the fourty frogs and four fearsome dogs could go sleep after in the barn.
