Farm Back

For centuries, your family lived here,
Parent, child and pet —
But lately, no one cared for it
So it lay desolate

I found I had the money and
So gave you your farm back;
Way out past where most people go
Well off the beaten track

Today’s the day you move back in
And you don’t know ’twas me
That gave you back what had been lost
Your family legacy

The things that pass must pass away,
That doesn’t mean they’re gone —
Your reclamation is a thing
That I won’t
Intrude
On

4 Thoughts to “Farm Back

  1. Very good. It is sad to see family farms being sold to big business where animals are treated without regard, and plants are genetically modified to endure larger amounts of pesticides. Where are the good family farms now?
