On a very perfect day
Charming the soil into thick rich rolls
A wonderous dance, which takes place in last year’s cornfields
The sent of the fresh-turned earth like none other
Leaving the life-giving cornstalks in the soil to develop into rich loam.
He then flattens all the clods and raised places making sure the corn stalks are there for the little earthworms to turn into the perfect food for this year’s crop.
What a huge gift to be able to live on the land.
