Treasure Island

Jeff Gangwer

(September 23,1984 / Hood River, Oregon)

Workers of the Earth


I thank God for the workers of the earth—
Those who rise to plant and harvest—
The same who cultivate—
The field ready,
The ground shaking,
The soil breaking—
The driver at the wheel,
His tractor rolling

And with dust rising upward,
He looks down the field—
By way of progress—
And finding a landmark—
A post or something other—
He aims and trains the assemblage—
His belching tractor and the implements—
And gains ground, feeding all

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
