The Ploughman

All day I follow
watching the swift dark furrow
that curls away from me
and care not for skies or upturned flowers

And at the end of the field
look backward
Ever with discontent
a stone or roots strayed thought
has thwarted the line of that furrow
and urge my horses ‘round again

Sometimes even before the row is finished
I must look backward
To find, when I come to the end
that I have swerved

Unappeased I leave the field
expectant, to return

The horses are very patient
when I tell myself
this time
the ultimate unflawed turning
is before my share
the must give up their rest

Someday, someday, be sure
I shall turn the furrow of all my hopes
but I shall not do it looking backward !

Unknown.
