country life

Build the mill, plow.

Keep the orchards clean,

shear the flocks and turn them out to pasture.

There is no disaster.

Fear not the flood and flame,

the wasting disease the herd will suffer come autumn.

Perhaps the corps shall rot. Grass will grow.

You will have white wool and apples.
