  • I will go with my Father a-ploughing

    To the Green Field by the sea,

    And the rooks and corbies and seagulls

    Will come flocking after me.

    I will sing to the patient horses

    With the lark in the shine of the air,

    And my Father will sing the Plough-Song

    That blesses the cleaving share.

    - Joseph Campbell, 'I Will Go With My Father A-Ploughing'.
