#WritePhoto Last Windmill

July 27, 2017 , ,

the last windmill

the last windmill

The pump beneath the windmill brings water to the fields
Narrow streams flow gently between the grain and weeds
Sustaining this small patch of land was easier in the past
Today we watch industry sprawl then collapse just as fast
In our youth we did not imagine this could happen here
That the last windmill in service would be held so dear
Ceremonies and pageantry now commemorate the times
When Mother Nature spoke to us in stories and in rhymes

It occurred to me from your poem that this windmill might have brought water rather than ground grain.

Such a lovely verse. Captures the essence of a reminder of the past.
