What does"My FarmAll Tractor" mean to me?



In my thoughts... "My Farmall Tractor" is a place I go...


You know...Words can say a lot...or take us to a place...any place.


I'm a lot like the ol' guy up on his tractor...looking at you...in the picture below. My World is content just sitting out on an ol' cow pasture...and workin' up a smile on how the day is progressin'.


Peace to you today! Hope ya' like the way your Day is progressin'...thus far!

Here's the Poem:



Lost in thoughts...My Farmall Tractor...is a place I go...

Where I travel through cow pastures...in a gear that's low.

The engine is the only sound...

That can be heard for miles around.



Out past the long ravine...in the early morning's first rays...

I find Peace and Contentment with my life...for the rest of my days.

I was born to be in the hustle and bustle of the modern world around...

But my heart yearns to live far away...out past the furthest town.



And in a moment where I can "Pause" from the world that is all around me...

I fire up my Farmall tractor...and head out miles away...Out in the coun-try.

With a gentle rumble the motor moves me along...

Occasionally, a tire splashing or old spring clunking...joins into its mellow song.

But, that is all I know of what I can hear...as I quietly bounce along without a care...

The world back where I came from can get loud and hectic...but out here...I'm unaware.


I hear a crow cawling...A hawk flies way above...

A deer crosses out in the hazy meadow...I smile at the world I love.

The mud gets thick at times...though the tractor moves steadily on ahead...

Good ol' tractor...so faithful and true...and so gloriously bright red.

I use you around the place...for many chores...you are the right tool for the job...

But today...I'm using you to get the kinks out'ta my back...on this saddle seat...where I bounce and bob.


There is no one around...there is no one who can see...

Looks like I found the place...Dear Lord...where it is only just you and me.

My mind begins to unwind...jumbled thoughts all begin to become clear...

So glad I hopped up on this tractor...and drove on out to here.

The new day opens up before me...

As fields display themselves...like a gigantic sea.


The woods sit on the Eastern side...quiet noises can be heard...

And the wild wind begins to pick-up...carrying along a gliding bird.

I have no more words to descibe this...the feeling is intense of Peace...at this place...

Inside my heart is happy...putting a new smile...on this ol' mans face.

I have seen some things on this planet...and I've been here...and I've been there...

But nothing at all is greater...then sitting out here on my Farmall Tractor...without a single care !


Lost in thoughts...My Farmall Tractor...is a place I go...

Where I travel through cow pastures...in a gear that's low.

The engine is the only sound...

That can be heard for miles around.
