Man on a Tractor
by Richard L. Provencher

Haying's done.
Dotted like freckles are
the mounds,
early morning when it all began.

First the mowing
then raking,
bailing into bundles
scattering across the field

acreage stretched into the sun.
A farmer
prideful of his rows,
the perfection of his bales

forgiving tiredness in his frame
knowing sheep and cattle will cavort
in the sweetness of grain.

The life of a young man
blissful, at
peace with himself--
sky and
a field of promise to fulfill.

Richard L. Provencher
