JESSE STUART  LOVE (Extract)   This morning my father and I got up with the chickens. He says one has to  get up with the chickens to do a day’s work. We got the posthole digger, ax,  spud, measuring pole and the mattock. We started for the clearing’s edge. Bob  didn’t go along. The dew was on the corn. My father walked behind with the posthole digger  across his shoulder. I walked in front. The wind was blowing. It was a good  morning wind to breathe and a wind that makes one feel like he can get under the  edge of a hill and heave the whole hill upside down. I walked out the corn row where we had come yesterday afternoon. I looked  in front of me. I saw something. I saw it move. It was moving like a huge black  rope winds around a windlass. “Steady,” I say to my father. “Here is the bull  blacksnake.” He took one step up beside me and stood. His eyes grew wide apart.
