Harvest Bounties

The time of great bounty is upon us
soon the ripe laden fields will be picked 
the crops gathered, harvest finished
a time of rejoicing, of work well done   

Celebrate the cycles, season after season
watch the children's happy laughing faces
as they carry oh so carefully orange candles
a gift to thank mother nature for her bounties

All too soon the nights draw in, frosty is the air
a reminder winter's on her way, all now laid bare
