Furrows Of Life


The narrow way leading up to the farm from the main
road had a gate, so cattle could not wander off on to
the main road getting. The way had three furrows two
caused by narrow cartwheel, and one- much wider- from
the horse´s hoofs. Deep furrows meant a hard-working
farm. The landscape was flat and often windy and on my
way to school I tried to walk where the horses had trod
the soil was softer there and the horseshoe patterns told
me if it had been a small or big horse that last had pulled
a cart here and if the load had been heavy
A knowledge that was totally useless and I often wonder
why I remember it so clearly, like a black& white photo.
Lately I have been remembering these ways and its users
I often think if there is a message here I have overlooked.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
