Collected Poems of Raymond Knister, ed. Dorothy Livesay (Toronto: Ryerson Press, 1949): 26. PS 8521 N567A17 1949 Robarts Library.
1Turn under, plow,
2My trouble;
3Turn under griefs
4And stubble.
5Turn mouse's nest,
6Gnawing years;
7Old roots up
8For new love's tears.
9Turn, plow, the clods
10For new thunder.
11Turn under, plow,
12Turn under.
