The Crofter

Now the crofter is a happy man, or at least he should be
His tasty food comes from the land, and sometimes from the sea
Out each morning with his dog, mending fences, tending stock
Then perhaps he'll walk the hillside and gather in his flock

When summer comes you may find him in the peat bog, as merrily he digs
He may spend many hours watching lambs at play, or talking to his pigs
His hens may gather at his feet eating worms as he digs new drains
And mending dykes is satisfying, though
