Wagon Days Done - Corvallis, Montana

"...A wagonload of radishes on a summer morning. 
Sprinkles of dew on the crimson-purple balls. 
The farmer on the seat dangles the reins on the rumps of 
dapple-gray horses...
The phantom of an old workhorse taking the steel point of a 
plow across a forty-acre field in spring, hitched to a harrow in 
summer, hitched to a wagon among cornshocks in fall, 
These phantoms come into the talk and wonder of people on 
the front porch of a farmhouse late summer nights..." - Carl Sandburg (1878–1967), from Cornhuskers, 1. Prairie
