"I weeded my backyard and I feel better / By meeting some primal agrarian need / ... / I need to be a farmer sometimes..."


Transcendental Sonnet #1397:

Farmer Sometimes

 

I weeded my backyard and I feel better

By meeting some primal agrarian need

The spirit of the act and not the letter

The general and not particular weed

I pulled them all nor did I discriminate

 

By manifest destiny my hand of fate

Acting as grim reaper and it was cheaper

Than having it done and a whole lot more fun

Synthesizing vitamin D in the sun

 

A Lance as a farmer not wearing armor

With calluses on my unaccustomed hands

Tonight as I write: my neighbor understands

I need to be a farmer sometimes he does too

 

It works for us and I think it might work for you

 

+Steven Curtis Lance
