The Lancaster Plain/Plane

Silos tightly clustered across a splayed-finger valley

Host green fields in spring.

Ground-top, “leapable” streams

Nurture the whole affair.

Holsteins, heads down

Glide across the (seemingly) shorn fields.

Barefoot children, women on bikes, men with teams

Manage the play, the errands, the plowing.

The sound of a bell (supper?).  Milk and maybe some honey but certainly homemade jam.
