North American Dreaming: The Sower's Tree

The grains bow down to sower's tree
to thank her for her grace
to adorn this land of wheat and grain
this field of golden lace

William Burkholder's poem captures the fruitful triumph of a field of grain in high summer.

Capture the essence
the aroma of the glade
grass waving gently
in summer breeze parade
Feel the wheat tops
brushing your hands
grasshoppers flit and jump
and that rustle that comes to your ears
with each gentle gust
bending the grains
and eyeing the sower's tree,
that single sentinel left in field
where block and tackle tied
cleared the field of brush and stone,
to make way for sower's seed
The grains bow down to sower's tree
to thank her for her grace
to adorn this land of wheat and grain
this field of golden lace
