The Best Farmer - Poem by Aufie Zophy

I dreamed I was a farmer,
the best farmer in the world.
Do not worry, I am not boasting:
it was only in my dreams.

I was the only farmer in my country,
providing food for everyone living there.
I did not make any claims;
I did not try to get privileges;
I surely was in control,
but did not dominate;
did not try to abuse my position.

No one else was interested in farming,
except my only one apprentice.
I taught him the skills and tricks of farming,
but above all, not to make any claims for himself
and perhaps,
the latter was the most important thing I taught him!
