Fortified fields, built for a season,
constructed by John Deere Green.
Loved like a child, conceived for a reason,
fulfilling a farmerís dream.

Planted and prayed for,
watered with sweat.
Almanac tested, hedging the bet.
Feeding the world, while taking a loss.
Looking ahead to cover the cost.

Hardened hands, cracked by the sun.
Fighting the elements, up before dawn.
Mortgaged land, floating in red.
Squeezed by the co-op,
the farm nearly dead

Up in the morning,
before the first light.
Like his father before him,
the farmers delight.
Planted and prayed for,
watered with sweat.
The skill of the farmer.
The greatest yield yet.

Very good yield of poetry, Poet!!! Powerful write!!! Itís sad what has happened to the farmers across the globe through the years!!! Yet, their fortitude and love of the land, has and will out last the co-ops and their greed!!! Thank you for your kind and gracious words, Lori. Just think, Iíll always be 21Ölol. Keep The Faith.

A very strong poem in all respects, Lori, and a wonderful tribute to our world's unsung heros. I am from farming stock myself here in the UK and know that this last generation, who have lived through the effects of increasing globalisation and the destruction of our basic farming roots as a nation, has seen and experienced the countryside's lifeblood squeezed from the land. So many commit suicide - glad to see the ending here was not what I was anticipating!! Strength in your thought processes and pen here, as much as in those hardened hands cracked by the sun. Thank you. Kate xx

"Valley Farm" is simply fantastic.
It has all that good poetry should have;
hearty subject, fluid thought and some
awesome rhyme. Oh I love the rhyme.

Very good writing poet. Dana

Wonderful Ode to the good old fashioned hardworking Mom and Pop Enterprise Farmer. Certainly not enough tributes and adulations have been paid to these generations of men and women who truly did put bread on our tables and meat on our plates.

And sadly, as someone else pointed out, gigantic modern farming conglomerates have practically made this hearty breeed extinct.

Truly enjoyed this, Lori.

It takes a tuff person to be a farmer
Fabulous write......

Lori, you write well and with knowledge of your subject. It is a shame how so many farmers struggle and sweat, and "Get Another Day Older And A Dollar In Debt." There is a lot of American idealism in being a farmer; and a lot of world realization as to the importance of their work. But so many have gone under and lost everything they
owned with nothing to show for their work after 50 years of struggle.
What an American catastrophe. Hugs Bill

A great poem...I can really relate to the corporate greed pushing farmers out of business. I watched a documentary a while back, that covered the change in farming from free range to more of a processing plant that resembled the gassing sheds used during the holocaust. I for one support free range and not mass production lines. Your poem is a nice tribute to these real farmers...nice work poet...Fletcher B

Discriptions are top drawer, hands cracked by the sun......
