After my father left
That piece of field was gone also
However, mother still never forgets to
till the land
Every day she holds a small spade and
Goes to the open space in the front backyard to
Remove the soil
She doesn't expect much fruit to grow from the land
The little spade used to
a tool of father's work
Holding it is like holding father's hand together with sb. in life and death
