As before, the log will be recounted with extracts from the private poetry collection of Dr Tomm.

The gate opens, and my field lies before me,
Spread out as a coverlet that holds the one I love.
Green weaving, over fertile ground.

The kisses from her mouth are soft.
There is no part of her that I will leave unturned. I love her as land and life.

Such ground I till, with labour of my hands and back.
I steer the course in straight lines, with cunning back and forth
I bite Earth with wood.
I, lavish, sow my seed.
Rejoice, ploughman, aching for your home.

– Venlar III,19
