Farmgirl by Mary Jane Butters

A farmgirl is anyone
who sews or knits or weaves
(or wants to learn how).

A farmgirl remembers
her mother or grandmother paring apples for pie.

A farmgirl believes in the strong arms of friendship,
community and the just plain fun of being together.

A farmgirl believes in connection.
a farmgirl ...
isn’t afraid to go it alone.

A farmgirl takes joy in the quiet satisfaction
of making things with her own hands.

A farmgirl wants a world that is sane, and just,
and clean, and is willing to do her part to make it so.

A farmgirl doesn’t have to live on a farm.
There’s a farmgirl in all of us.

Farmgirl is a condition of the heart.
