When The Sun's Behind The Hill Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


There's a soft and peaceful feelingA
Comes across the farming handB
As the shadows go a stealingA
Slow along the new turned landB
The lazy curling smoke above the thatch is showing blueC
And the weary old plough horses wander homeward two 'n' twoC
With their chains a'clinkin' clankin' when their daily toil is throughC
And the sun's behind the hillD
Then it's slowly homeward ploddingA
As the night begins to creepE
And the barley grass is noddingA
To the daisies all asleepE
The crows are flying heavily and cawing overheadF
The sleepy milking cows are lowing sof'ly in the shedF
And above them in the rafters all the fowls have gone to bedF
When the sun's behind the hillD
Then it's 'Harry feed old Roaney 'G
And it's 'Bill put up the rail 'G
And it's 'Tom turn out the pony 'G
'Mary hurry with the pail 'G
And the kiddies run to meet us and are begging for a rideH
On the broad old 'Prince' and 'Darkey' they can hardly sit astrideH
And mother she is bustling with the supper things insideH
When the sun's behind the hillD
Then it's sitting down and yarningA
When we've had our bite and supI
And the mother takes her darningA
And Bess tells how the baldy cow got tangled in the wireJ
And Katie keeps the baby boy from tumbling in the fireJ
And the baccy smoke goes curling as I suck my soothing briarJ
When the sun's behind the hillD
And we talk about the seasonK
And of how it's turning outL
And we try to guess the reasonK
For the long continued droughtL
Oh a farmer's life ain't roses and his work is never doneK
And a job's no sooner over than another is begunK
For he's toiling late and early from the rising of the sunK
Till he sinks behind the hillD
But it grows that peaceful feelingA
While I'm sitting smoking thereM
And the kiddies all are kneelingA
To repeat their ev'ning prayerM
For it seems somehow to lighten all the care that must be boreN
When the things of life are worrying and times are troubling soreN
And I pray that God will keep them when my own long day is o'erJ
And the sun's behind the hillD
