The Cornfield
By Elizabeth Madox Roberts
From “Under the Tree”

I WENT across the pasture lot
  When not a one was watching me.
Away beyond the cattle barns
  I climbed a little crooked tree.
And I could look down on the field        5
  And see the corn, and how it grows
Across the world, and up and down,
  In very straight and even rows.
And far away and far away—
  I wonder if the farmer man        10
Knows all about the corn, and how
  It comes together like a fan.
