Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Ploughman's Song
Missed thread "Damned Idle Fellows...." when I posted this thread. Snuffy posted same in 2000.
Thanks, Jim, for adding The Useful plough,...
Ploughing, as it once was, was dirty, tiring, itchy work. I doubt the sentiments in these poems.
Nowadays, much is done by farmers in air-conditioned cabs. Not a farmer myself, but pleasant times shooting the breeze and hearing jokes, riding in the cabs of the fine equipment on Hutterite farms.
