Poetry #126
(published March 20, 2003)
Farmer's Arms
by Anonymous

Let the wealthy and great
Roll in splendour and State
I envy them not, I declare it
I eat my own lamb
My own chickens and ham
I shear my own fleece and I wear it
I have lawns, I have bowers
I have fruits, I have flowers
The lark is my morning alarmer
So jolly boys now
Here's god speed the plough
Long life and success to the farmer

Industry Produceth Wealth

Found poem on old English tea cups, a set of eight, of which I bought one off an old pickin' rival at the Holland auction, last August. — submitted by Marcy Jarvis
