Harvest Quotes

Page 5

  • Once more the liberal year laughs out
      O'er richer stores than gems of gold;
    Once more with harvest song and shout
      Is nature's boldest triumph told.
    - J. G. Whittier Harvest Hymn.

  • Lo! where the heath, with withering brake grown o'er,
    Lends the light turf that warms the neighbouring poor;
    From thence a length of burning sand appears,
    Where the thin harvest waves its wither'd ears;
    Rank weeds, that every art and care defy,
    Reign o'er the land, and rob the blighted rye:
    There thistles stretch their prickly arms afar,
    And to the ragged infant threaten war;
    There poppies nodding, mock the hope of toil;
    There the blue bugloss paints the sterile soil;
    Hardy and high, above the slender sheaf,
    The slimy mallow waves her silky leaf;
    O'er the young shoot the charlock throws a shade,
    And clasping tares cling round the sickly blade.
    - George Crabbe 1754-1832 The Village bk. i, 1. 63

  • I struck the board and cried, "No more;
      I will abroad.
    What, shall I ever sigh and pine?
    My lines and life are free, free as the road,
    Loose as the wind, as large as store.
    Shall I be still in suit?
    Have I no harvest but a thorn
    To let me blood, and not restore
    What I have lost with cordial fruit?
      Sure there was wine
    Before my sighs did dry it; there was corn
    Before my tears did drown it.
    Is the year only lost to me?
    Have I no bays to crown it?
    - George Herbert The Collar

  • The harvests of Arretium,
      This year, old men shall reap.
    This year, young boys in Umbro
      Shall plunge the struggling sheep;
    And in the vats of Luna,
      This year, the must shall foam
    Round the white feet of laughing girls
      Whose sires have marched to Rome.
    - Lord Macaulay 1800-1859
