HARVEST
[ Also see Agriculture Autumn Fruits Gardens Harvest Home Pumpkins Thankfulness Thanksgiving Day Trees ]

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.
      - Bible, Ecclesiastes (ch. XI, v. 4)

In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.
      - Bible, Ecclesiastes (ch. XI, v. 6)

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
      - Bible, Galatians (ch. VI, v. 7)

Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
  Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
      - Bible, Matthew (ch. IX, v. 37-38)

Nature's bank-dividends.
      - Thomas Chandler Haliburton (used pseudonym Sam Slick)

The plump swain at evening bringing home four months' sunshine bound in sheaves.
      - James Russell Lowell

Glowing scene!
  Nature's long holiday! luxuriant--rich,
    In her proud progeny, she smiling marks
      Their graces, now mature, and wonder fraught!
        Hail! season exquisite!--and hail ye sons
          Of rural toil!--ye blooming daughters! ye
            Who, in the lap of hardy labor rear'd,
              Enjoy the mind unspotted.
      - Mary Robinson

Who eat their corn while yet 'tis green
  At the true harvest can but glean.
      - Moslih Eddin (Muslih-un-Din) Saadi (Sadi),
        Gulistan (Garden of Roses)

To glean the broken ears after the man
  That the main harvest reaps.
      - William Shakespeare

So holy and so perfect is my love,
  And I in such a poverty of grace,
    That I shall think it a most plenteous crop
      To glean the broken ears after the man
        That the main harvest reaps.
      - William Shakespeare, As You Like It
         (Silvius at III, v)

The feast is such as earth, the general mother,
  Pours from her fairest bosom, when she smiles,
    In the embrace of autumn.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley

And thus of all my harvest-hope I have
  Nought reaped but a weedye crop of care.
      - Edmund Spenser,
        The Shepherd's Calendar--December
         (L. 121)

The harvest treasures all
  Now gather'd in, beyond the rage of storms,
    Sure to the swain; the circling fence shut up;
      And instant winter's utmost rage defy'd.
        While loose to festive joy, the country round
          Laughs with the loud sincerity of mirth,
            Shook to the wind their cares.
      - James Thomson (1)

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 you kind
        Wide-hover round you, like the fowls of heaven,
          And ask their humble dole.
      - James Thomson (1), Autumn (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.
      - Thomas Warton, the Younger,
        Ode--The First of April (l. 97)
