131. The Plowboy
 
 
AFTER the last red sunset glimmer,
Black on the line of a low hill rise,
Formed into moving shadows, I saw
A plowboy and two horses lined against the gray,
Plowing in the dusk the last furrow.        5
The turf had a gleam of brown,
And smell of soil was in the air,
And, cool and moist, a haze of April.
 
I shall remember you long,
Plowboy and horses against the sky in shadow.        10
I shall remember you and the picture
You made for me,
Turning the turf in the dusk
And haze of an April gloaming.
