Harvest Time

Autumn is near
As near can be,
The leaves are falling
from off the trees.

Cool winds blow
softly through the rows
of all the vegetables
the farmers grow.

Harvest has come
It is time to reap.
Some crops we sell
and some we keep.

Picking and weeding,
It's a lot of work,
But it can also be fun
Digging down in the dirt.

Our elders know
What it's like to toil
from dawn to dusk
working the soil.

After it's all over
And the cellar is stuffed,
No worries this winter,
Cause we have veggies enough.
