The warm June day embraced my soul

As I walked down the lane.

The flowers swayed to my lazy stroll,

My smile I held in vain.

.

The colors shouted loud and clear,

“We love a sunny day!”

Not far off, in a hayfield near

  A farmer was sneezing away.

.

Concerned was I, I jumped the ditch

And made my way to him.

“Gesundheit, sir, how you do twitch

Your eyes, also look grim!”

.

He looked at me and stared me down

His eyes fair watering.

His face not kind, he wore a frown

And said, quite blistering,

.

“Get off my land, you no good clown!

Be off with you, I say!

Before I come and beat you down

With this here bale of hay!”

.

Concerned grew I, I jumped the ditch

And ran away from him.

He gunned his tractor in a fit

His eyes still looking grim.

.

I hurried to my waiting car

As fast as I could go.

I had no desire with him to spar:

So much for his red nose!
