NOW THE SLOW DAWN, by                    
First Line: Now the slow dawn relentless along the prairie
Last Line: Go out to the north mowing. Surely the dream will keep.
Subject(s): Dawn; Farm Life; Sunrise; Agriculture; Farmers


Now the slow dawn relentless along the prairie
Dredges unready men out of the pits of sleep.
Untwine your heart from the dream, rise, go out to the dairy,
Go out to the north mowing. Surely the dream will keep.
