Fields
    Footnotes

    “Fields,” New Era, Aug. 1983, 24

    Fields

    Silent squares

    and regal rectangles;

    Patchworks of gold

    and green and brown

    Acres of humble labor.

    Yet, for being the site of heavy work,

    They have a strange quality

    of beckoning

    And smell like freedom and wind

    and seasons

    rippling through their grasses.
