Harvest Prayer

Harvest Prayer

A Poem by Fabian G. Franklin




Blankets of fog rest softly on corn

Caressing brown tassels in early light

A soft mist kisses the cheeks of morning

And soothes the soul with ethereal white


Across the field, shadows of trees

Stand silhouette like guards of dawn;

Soldiers silent in corridors eastern

Await the king in castles of the sun


He burns in glory just below the horizon

Sending forth rays into velvet sky

Pulling quilts from the beds of his children

As they raise their green sleeves high


The palaces glow in rosy reflection

Clouds crown the day with a wreath

Then golden laurels in every direction

And every honor the sun can bequeath


Waking stalks rustle quietly in prayer

Their striated leaves like a chorus

Whispering hope to the farmer where

He stands listening for their voices

Must invest in some
It is good to read a well structured poem, with good unstilted rhymes. Your words do the subject matter great justice. I enjoyed this well observed poem.

Thank you for reading and for leaving a comment. I appreciate your time and kind words.
each year the farmer hopes for a good harvest---and hopes nature will cooperate---picturesque poem...as is your signature..

this reminds me of Vermont...and the sunrise over the pasture full of cows that was across the street from where we stayed.
actually use to help milk those cows...
