Once a Farmer

Always a farmer watching the wheat

Growing, growing

Stong, beautiful, and with a lovely hue of green

Little ones growing, growing and growing

strong

The rain comes

The rain goes

Never enough

Always to much

Little ones growing, growing, beautiful and

strong

Now tall, strong, and beautifully gold

that sea of gold with waves stirred by the wind

It is almost time to rest for the winter

then wake up in the spring to push through 

ground

Little ones growing, growing, and growing.

- Poem written by former patient L. Munn, 2016 alongside Writer-In-Residence Kristine Scarrow.
