The Farmer Poem by Ben Gieske


welcomes spring
opening his book of fields
furrowing the pages

rows of stories
revisited
repeated traces of family history

new entries
sown
branching free

budding ears
picking the tunes
of spirited winds

under sailing caravans
caught up in the swirling arms
of chapters in an autumn way

rolling up the scrolls
of leaves of grass
spirited away from winter chills

settling in lofty bins
cribbed indexes
of a next generation
