In photos from family gatherings he stands
than the rest of us
our constant invariable.
Despite broken ribs,
not once but twice!
Despite the bull’s best efforts,
our urges to lessen the workload,
watch the races and leave the farming-
An old farmer never retires.
He doubles the size of the vegetable patch,
two new stables,
buys a flock of ewes
(and claims they’ll lamb themselves…
we all know they will not lamb themselves)
