The Sacrificial Harvest
by Robin Fennelly
Age Group: Adult
The blade is sharp
Scythe swings in
Flashing arc as
Sheaf of wheat
And apples fall
The Harvest now begun.
Gather the grain
Leave what you must
Fill carefully woven baskets
With the overflowing bounty.
Roll and knead
Loaves of bread
Baked in ovens
Hot from wood and sun.
Breadman filled with
Herb and savory
His great sacrifice
Pulled apart by
Hunger’s needy call.
Consume the energy
Swallow the light
Feel the great
Blessing of living grain’s
Sustaining of all life.
No time to linger
Fields are awaiting
The reaping and
Grain man’s sacrifice
As humanity peacefully
Slumbers sated on sacred
Harvest with warm bellies full.
