Woman in a Normandy Field

She stood alone
under a grey sky's impassive discipline,
dark earth stretched about her beyond sight
its raw furrows gaping.
Turning full circle she surveyed a year's work
laid out like a cloth behind her.
Then slowly her knees bent to ground once more
and with deliberate hands
she began the season's first task.
