Internalizing Poem Example

The Hill Farmer

He tills within the buzzard's flight 

this cruel land he calls his home, 

ewe and wether, milk and bucket, 

broken spirit, ne'er to roam. 

He's stuck for good, the laws of nature 

guide him, be they right or wrong, 

gone his hopes and his compassion, 

save for the curlew's mournful song. 


Courted by the country lasses, 

love can't penetrate this soul, 

pain and grief his only help meets, 

daily toil his only goal. 

Mother, father, gone to dust now, 

confidants who'd calm his fears, 

struggling with a heavy heart, 

internalizing all his tears. 


It's back to digging, discompacting 

stones and boulders from the earth, 

working 'til there's no more sun 

in Wales, the cradle of his birth. 

Striving against the elements 

he stretches every nerve and bone, 

every muscle, every sinew, 

'til exhaustion brings him home. 


Ne'er a smile adorns his visage, 

there simply is no time for this, 

haggard, careworn, slave to nature, 

racked by weather's wantonness. 

Two weeks gone, and there they find him, 

chided by the wind and rain, 

cadavered and condemned to fester, 

never to be sad again. 


                 *******


...dedicated to the Welsh poet R.S. Thomas

   and his book, 'Song At The Year's Turning.'
