Seasons of the Farmer by Sarah Thomas

The time has come for new life to begin.
It’s springtime around here!
The Farmer is busy working ground and
Planting seed in his fields.
Cows are calving and some need tending to.
The Farmer’s job is never ending.

Rain is a good thing during these hot summer months.
The Farmer needs his crops to grow.
The weeds not so much, so it’s his job to keep them under control.
It seems like the cutting hay season will never end,
But the Farmer will be glad he has that source of feed for his stock come winter.
The Farmer’s job is never ending.

It’s harvest time in this farming community.
Farmers are traveling from field to field working to get the crop in.
Cows are calving and some need tending to.
Equipment breaks down in the fields and needs fixin’.
Days are growing shorter but
The Farmer’s job is never ending.

Winter seems to come so quickly.
Time to buy new equipment and fix the old.
Time to feed the stock because they depend on the farmer.
Time to buy seed and meet with the accountant.
Time to plan for another year.
The Farmer’s job is never ending.
