April 19th…….“GRANDPA, DID YOUR DADDY USE HORSES TO FARM WITH IN SOUTHERN MINNESOTA? OR JUST TRACTORS”?
POEM – “King And Colonel” by N. Elliott Noorlun
“King and Colonel”, That equine pair,
With regal manes, Of flowing hair,
Helped make Dad’s work, Seem rightly fair,
While working on our farm.
Whether pulling plow, In rich black furrow,
Or parade wagon, In nearby burrow,
This stately team, With power thorough,
Always meant us good, Not harm.
Our father there, With reins in hand,
It must’ve made him, Feel so grand,
To farm the land, Just like his dad,
I’ll bet his heart felt warm!!! 😉
