The Best Farmer Poem by Aufie Zophy

The Best Farmer

Rating: 5.0

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!

A real farmer or as what you mentioned above, both are wonderful....because of them we grow and we have good life, though people are dont look at them but who can deny their importance. I wont! . indeed to all of us, we are doing something, so i appreciate each of the farmer and the teacher. you deserved more respect!
