The Red Tractor

along meadows and fields
cutting deep in rich soil

sturdy and strong the red tractor

seagulls land like snowflakes
new over old fade to brown

Promted by a comment from John Malone to my tractor post. In relation to ‘William Carlos Williams’ poem ‘The Red Wheelbarrow’ I made this humble attempt to a ‘red tractor poem’.

What red things do you like to have a poem written to? Ha de Gött!
