A Farmers' Poem for Thanksgiving

Email News Alerts

A Late Harvest

there was a lot of corn left in the field

when October's sun began to yield

to early sleet and blowing snow


white soon covered waiting rows

and combines were left standing still

snow fell and then, more rain

stopped the wheels on terrain

men and women waited still

and checked the fields as if to will

the muddy, sloppy ground to dry

the farmer's brow was furrow-deep
