Summary

Tom Todd (T. T. Kilbucho) summarises the subject of the poem then recites it. An old bachelor farmer was left alone when his sister died, and was too old to work the farm any longer. He was taken to town to end his days. He missed the country. He could not hear the birds nor see the signs of spring.
