And with that, here's the poem and the painting (courtesy the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp).
PEASANT WOMAN DIGGING UP POTATOES
After Van Gogh’s painting of the same name
Row after row, bent to her task,
she digs into the waning light.
Before the fall, fields bathed
in sunlight and joy. Now,
engaged against the coming
frost, she toils to the harvest,
though each thrust of her spade
only brings her closer to Elysium.
