Thursday Extracts: God Speed the Plough

God speed the plough

I found this at Battlefield 1403 near Shrewsbury. All the references I can find attribute it to Trad. or Anon.

A nice verse, but I would guess it was not written by a farmer and dates from the 17th century when the rural life was idolised by those far removed from the reality of farming.
