April 5th…………..“WHAT WAS A PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTIC YOU SAW IN YOUR FARMER DADDY THAT MADE HIM EVEN MORE SPECIAL”?
POEM – “A Farmer’s Man Tan” by N. Elliott Noorlun
There’s nothing so grand, For a “prince” of the land,
Than the honored visage, Of a farmer’s man tan.
With his forehead white, While his face burned brown,
From wind and sun, T’was an award of reknown.
Just like their livestock, They lived outdoors,
Working in the fields, And a doin’ their chores,
Whether baseball cap, Or fedora’s full brim,
Or engineer’s cap, With striped blue trim,
It gave them protection, From weather’s ire,
As they farmed their land, Their passion’s fire.
To provide for their legacy, In the farming life they ran,
And proud they were to wear, A farmer’s man tan!! 😉
