Harvest
 
For now, the corn house filled, the harvest home,
Th’ invited neighbors to the husking come;
A frolic scene, where work and mirth and play
Unite their charms to cheer the hours away.
        Joel Barlow—The Hasty Pudding.

  He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.
        Ecclesiastes. XI. 4.

  In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand.
        Ecclesiastes. XI. 6.

  Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

  4
  The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few.
        Matthew. IX. 37.
  5
Who eat their corn while yet ’tis green,
At the true harvest can but glean.

Nought reaped but a weedye crop of care.

        Think, oh, grateful think!
How good the God of Harvest is to you;
Who pours abundance o’er your flowing fields,
While those unhappy partners of your kind
Wide-hover round you, like the fowls of heaven,
And ask their humble dole.
        Thomson—Autumn. L. 169.
  9
Fancy with prophetic glance
Sees the teeming months advance;
The field, the forest, green and gay;
The dappled slope, the tedded hay;
Sees the reddening orchard blow,
The Harvest wave, the vintage flow.
        Warton—Ode. The First of April. L. 97.
