Thank You For This Bounty, God

Thank you for this bounty, God
that you give to me
for grain that grows within the field
and fruit upon the tree
Thank you for the little seeds
that in the spring are sown
and with your gifts of sun and rain
have through the summer grown
Thank you for the farmers, Lord
and bless them for their toil
as now they gather in the fall
this bounty from your soil

This was inspired by Brian Strands' Harvest Hymn Contest, which I unfortunately missed 
but I wanted to share it with you today and dedicate it to Brian for the inspiration and 
support he gives to us here at the Soup.  RG

    I thoroughly enjoyed this lovely poem. I am new to PS and am finding that I quite enjoy picking at random poems to read. This is the first one I have picked today and so glad I did. It is very well written and praises God, which I like very much. Love, Charlene

    This is very beautiful, it would have been a winner for sure. A true tribute to the farmers who work so hard to provide what we, more often than not, take for granted. I want to thank you also, for taking the time to respond to my husbands poem as well. This is the kind of feedback he needs to keep going. (and writing) thank you so much~Trudy~
