Notes:

The farmer stands in a muddy field with one hand on his hip, behind a pair of horses hitched to a single-furrow plough [US: plow]. He wears a hat, a tied neckerchief and tall boots.

Who ploughs with pain his native lea
    And reaps the labour of his hands
    Or in the furrow musing stands,
“Does my old friend remember me?”
