POEM OF THE DAY: Plowman’s Song

by Raymond Knister (1899 – 1932).

 

Plowman’s Song

 

Turn under, plow,

My trouble;

Turn under griefs

And stubble.

 

Turn mouse’s nest,                      5

Gnawing years;

Old roots up

For new love’s tears.

 

Turn, plow, the clods

For new thunder.                       10

Turn under, plow,

Turn under.
