I chose this poem for the title and you have captured the essence of a farmer's love for the land
and the beauty of bygone days. Farmers are battling to survive in Australia now, but my husband is a country boy and remembers it all. He says you can take the boy out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the boy. Thanks Marilyn for this poem. 10 Karin Anderson
Oh! How I missed all these beautiful poems so far? Magnificient poems, heart warming really. Jayahoo Farmers of the world! ! ! I wish to know more about US farmers; you may send me a message. Here our farmers are losing their lands to help industrialization. I wrote poems like MOTHER'S PLAINT and THAT RAINY DAY. All fertile tracts are converted into factories emitting foul smokes and smells. I wonder what is happening to our Country.
