Last Cutting

        Last Cutting

Warm autumn evening
Baler making last run of season
Rhythm of plunger packing grass

Sun low on horizon
Cloudless as blaze dies
Ever slowly disappearing

Tractor and baler in sync
Gobbling up the rows
Leaving small squares behind

Forty five year old equipment
Still laboring in the field
Ready for two seasons of rest
