A Farmer’s Sunset

The farmer put in very long days
After supper he’d go back out
And work sometimes ‘till long after dark

Comments about A Farmer’s Sunset by Marilyn Lott

    An elegiac poem picture of an era
    of simplicity and beauty that seems to be
    going down with the sun. It brings back
    memories of my grandfathers who loved
    the green land.

    Warm wishes,

    Sandra

    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.
