    Fold...

    Context:
    Landscape plotted and pieced, fold, fallow and plough,
    And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim.
    All things counter, original, spare, strange,
    Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)
    With swift, slow; sweet, sour; a dazzle, dim.
    He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change;

    (1) Fold?

    (2) Counter?

    (3) Fathers-forth?

    (1) fold of the land, (2) opposite, and (3) gives life/continues the genetic line.

    All the best, :D

    Thanks.

    But I didn't get fold yet. Please expain "fold" with other word rather the word itself.

    fold, vb. to bend or close (a flexible thing) over upon itself. EX: The lands folds here and there (i.e., The land bends over upon itself). :D
