You come too …

Springtime on the farm … pick a site, enjoy fireside chats, breakfast early, and then:

Get to work ...

With the relief from winter’s snow comes a time to plant, to fence, to split wood for next year, to well, just to get ready.  Robert Frost had a few things to say about this too:

I’m going out to clean the pasture spring;
I’ll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I shan’t be gone long. — You come too. 

I’m going out to fetch the little calf
That’s standing by the mother. It’s so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I shan’t be gone long. — You come too.
