Farm owner


The farm owner saw appropriately that he needed many farm hands to work it
However he saw less or none of the many hands enjoying the harvest of the farm
Come harvest time, the reap was uppermost in his single mind
He’ll be rich there’s’ no doubt about it, he believes

Alas, the mahogany brown coloured corn covered the vast farm and beckoned
Thou hands shall reap what it has sown by the same might of yesterday and today
Thou hands shall feed the hungry throng with the same might of yesterday and today
Thou smile shall traverse from the tiller to the feeder

Therefore all will be happy and rich
Because of team till, team tender and team harvest

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
