THE BOUNTIFUL HARVEST

The Seeds were planted months ago,
After clearing the ground and tilling the soil.
At first, it seemed that nothing was happening;
Then, green shoots appeared,
Growing into plants,
And finally, bearing fruit

But the fruit was small, hard and green
It was sour with no flavor whatsoever.
Then, as rain, sun and fresh air did their work,
The fruit grew bigger;
It grew plump and sweet
Juice flowed from its colored cheeks.

People gathered to enjoy it
With family and friends around tables piled high,
Full of salads, meats and foods lovingly prepared
Thoughts of favorite treats
Bringing great pleasure
To people precious and dear.
