A Time To Sow

The scorching heat is almost done

So circle work is soon begun

Burning, smoke and water cart

Spray and rain, will give a start


Seed and super, fertilise

The hardest hour? Before sunrise!

Rains are welcome, if they arrive

But seeders may then sit a while


Pour and drive, turn, unblock

Auger, seeder, combine, stock

Move sheep and cattle; hay to feed

Another paddock, sow with seed


Days and nights are ever long

Families sing their mournful song

Soon the season will be done

Winter, spring rains; would we welcome
