A Farmer's Ode to Insulated Overalls

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depths and breadth and height
Of thine coverage, keeping my jammies out of sight.
For the insulation and elastic braces
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most wintry need, darkest night or snowy sunlight.
I love thee freely, moving in comfort through my days
I love thee purely, pockets placed just right.
I love thee with a passion put to use
As I unzip the legs to remove my heavy boots.
I love thee with a love I'll never lose
With every day, and continued wear
Rips, tears, you never let me down, and if I choose
I shall love thee better, even after a new pair.

With apologies to Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

Low maintenance farming: how to do what needs to be done without spending all day on it.
