Of The EarthUp at the crack of dawnWith the crowing of the cock Go to gather the eggsAs the old hens scold and squawk.Feed the horses, milk the cows,By the rising morning sunIt seems you've worked half a day --But it's only just begun.Time for breakfast -- not store-boughtBacon, eggs, and homemade biscuitsCherry jam, put up last FallAnd some plums canned with the pits.You fix the leak in the barnMend the hole that's in the fenceYou clear the weeds from the ditchThat have grown so thick and dense.Drive twenty miles into townJust to get needed suppliesHurry back to mow the fieldsJust as soon as the dew dries.Then it's time for dinner --The main meal of the dayShe's one helluva cook --Is all that you can say.You start baling up the hay Now that it's all cut downGet a drink of sweet water From the well below the ground.Still a few more chores to doBefore the evening sunset.You have pride in knowing thatYou work hard for all you get.Time for supper -- something light --The time to relax and talk To have a cup of coffee --Maybe take a moon-lit walk.
