- HE behind the straight plough stands
- Stalwart, firm shafts in his hands.
- Naught he cares for wars and naught
- For the fierce disease of thought.
- Only for the winds, the sheer
- Naked impule of the year,
- Only for the soil which stares
- Clean into God's face he cares.
- In the stark might of his deed
- There is more than art or creed;
- In his wrist more strength is hid
- Than in the monstrous pyramid;
- Stauncher than stern Everest
- Be the muscles of his breast;
- Not the Atlantic sweeps a flood
- Potent as the ploughman's blood.
- He, his horse, his ploughshare, these
- Are the onnly verities.
- Dawn to dusk with God he stands,
- The earth poised on his broad hands.
- Louis Golding
