Vintage Poem for Scrapbooking, Card Making or Graphic Design: Back to the Farm (Part 4 of 4)


Part 4 (of 4) of a poem by Martha Gilbert Dickinson Bianchi called "Back to the Farm" and illustrated by N.C. Wyeth.

Out in the dews with the spider at his shuttle --
In that half-dreaming hour that awakes the whippoorwill
And sets the nighthawk darting sinister and subtle,
F'er the full moon complacent loiters o'er the hill.

Back to the farm!
With the friendly brute for neighbor,
Where youth and Nature beckon, the tryst who would not keep?
Back to the luxury of rest that follows labor,
Back to the primal joys of hunger and of sleep!
