What is the theme and some literary devices in this poem “Seeding Time” by Marilyn Cay?
“Seeding Time” by Marilyn Cay
I dream our combine see it coming
big and self-propelled across a field
swallowing a forgotten swath from last fall
fast coming so fast it begins to buck
the pick-up reaching into the sky then
catching dirt on its way down nearing
the hedge it doesn’t slow or stop or veer
through five rows of trees
lurches through the yard my husband slumped at the wheel
the combine finally stops far out in another field
the one he’s hell-bent to finish seeding if it kills him
