Farewell to a Tractor

My father’s tractor
older than my children
mowed a lot of grass
hauled a lot of stuff
in the homemade trailer
including the grandchildren
who learned to drive on it
broke down a lot too
and for 20 years
slumbered in the shed
now it’s autumn again
time to create space
to do a new thing
say another bit of
goodbye to my father
and times gone by.
