SELF-REJECTED, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Plow not nor plant this arid mound
Last Line: Spare your trouble.
Subject(s): Farm Life; Hope; Agriculture; Farmers; Optimism

PLOW not nor plant this arid mound.
Here is no sap for seed,
No ferment for your need --
Ungrateful ground!

No sun can warm this spot
God has forgot;
No rain can penetrate
Its barren slate.

Demonic winds blow last year's stubble
From its hard slope.
Go, leave the hopeless without hope;
Spare your trouble.
