"Good heavens, of what uncostly material
is our earthly happiness composed... if we only knew it.
What incomes have we not had from a flower,
and how unfailing are the dividends of the seasons."
James Russell Lowell
Giant rolls of hay
Line the barnyards and pastures
Holding promise of plenty for winter
Golden brown grass with
Water and green pulled out
Waiting to be dinner to
Herds of hungry horses
Cows carrying calves
Who will greet the world
Early one chilly morning.
