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 BarlowThe Hasty Pudding.
Think, oh, grateful think! How good the God of Harvest is to you; Who pours abundance oer your flowing fields, While those unhappy partners of your kind Wide-hover round you, like the fowls of heaven, And ask their humble dole. ThomsonAutumn. L. 169.
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. WartonOde. The First of April. L. 97.
