Majestic Machines

I was always fascinated with old Grist and Windmills and thought I would portray two beautiful ones I found years ago online. And decided to write a poem about these majestic machines.

Grist And Windmills

Round the Grist and Windmill turn
Gristmill needed to mill the grain
Windmill needed to pump ground water
These Mills on farms must maintain

Rotating energy of wheels and blades
Converting the wind into energy means
Great gristmills and old windmills
The Farmers love these great machines

Yes watch as grist and windmill turn
One by the water to mill the grain
Both always needed to pump up water
The Windmills on farms do maintain
