Days of rain during harvest
give us a time to rest
But all too quickly we begin to wonder
“Where’s the sun?”
We peer at the darkened, cloudy sky
and wish for the warming, drying sun
So critical for harvest happening
Rain storms pass by
with wind, lightning and thunder
as we watch, helpless
the cornstalks jerk and lean
heavy ears at risk
Hang on!
Don’t twist and turn and break!
Truth be told
the sun is there
just waiting above the earthbound clouds
the clouds will rush away
and the sun will work again
So wait, uh, patiently!
That’s so hard!
Get ready, to run and pounce
work and laugh and share
The earth comes with seasonings!
