He stands there
Amid the weathered stalks of a plowed field
His face is solemn
The earthy smell and silent dawn reflect the solitude in his eyes
He squints to the east
As the closing rays touch the toes of a worn boot
The scent of rain rises with his hand
To absently rub a sun beaten neck
And his care stands still in the quiet growth of years
He is the farmer
What does he think about?
