The Harvest
Once ebbed a sipphlro soa by vagrant
breesea stirred,
Now stubble bristles drear where reap
ers' blades have whirred.
Tho rlponed. sun-kissed fields have yield
ed up their gold;
The yeomen In tholr bins the garnered
bushels bold.
Tho season's wealth Is In; tho scales have
mado their test
The harvest sun, of red, has settled In tho
West!
The harvest year ts done! What treasure
didst thou gain?
What said the scales In pounds when
weighing out thy grain?
How planted thee? And what? And how
beneath the sun
Didst thou thy dally vigils keep with
work begun?
Didst toll a faithful day o'er healthy
planted seed
Or didst thou, careless, tarry whilst the
grass and weed
Crept In and left their suckers on thy
harvest field?
For by that record did thy garmted harv
est yield!
Ahl by thy dally tending shalt Life's
harvest be,
A-scant of bushels or a bursting sight to
seel
The harvest field of Life yields what thy
self hath sown,
And what thou garnereth Is all thy very
ownl
Then on tho field of Life It pays With care
to tend
Thy dally duty to the harvest's golden
end.
Sow only wholesome wheat In kernels
sound and strong
Pluck out tho stifling gruwth-the weeds
and tares of wrong!
Once ebbed a sapphire sea by vagrant
breezes stirred,
Now stubble bristles drear where reapers'
blades have whirred
What gloanest thou? A harvest from a
laden field
Or shrunken grain? What Is the record
of thy yield?
