Shocked Grain

Neat rows of shocked grain in fields Just sounds of sickle's blade sweep Laborers walk swiftly in teams Meooow~~cat's tail squeezed Meooow~~meoow cat's tail squeezed As workers lift those bundles Tie the wheat into neat shocks The setting sun slides As that sun sets behind hills Laborer and cat head home Warm hearth, warm meal, rocking chair Meoooo~~cat's tail squeezed

    a very interesting one, and It looks as if you may have changed it after Debs first saw it? I bet it is even better now than the first time!

    i like the dodoitsu

    You have the idea Sara & humor is one of the focus's of the form I would define what a shock of grain is in the verse instead of using the word, remember you are encouraged to do a string of dodoitsu and that they were meant to be a song, so you have room to expand how the cat got into the picture too, I loved you introducing the sound of the sickle! Keep going! Light & Love
