Sligo Tractor Dance

In through the field gate comes
the tractor, with added beak,
behind is its partner, pulling
a container to receive its spew.
Then round the dance floor of the summer
field, two days old, two hour dance,
for while the sun shines?

Together in step time, no foxtrot,

[Hata Bildir]
