THE CORN IS READY - RIPE ~ Beneath the Branches

The Fields are blanched with hazy heat

In English Farms or on Mid-West Ranches

Too hot for walkin* in bare feet !

 

The Fields are blanched with hazy heat

The Combine Harvester is primed

Too hot for walkin* in bare feet

Each Season with My Poetry is Rhymed !

 

The Combine Harvester is primed

*Reap while you May* before October Rain

Each Season with My Poetry is Rhymed

*Rhyme while you May* Muse may not stir again !

  • Romantic Bloom

    Very delightful read! Perhaps, I’ll try writing one myself!

    • ANGELA & BRIAN

      Thanks ROMANTIC pleased you enjoyed ~ easy to write - BUT - Remember in the last verse Line THREE of Verse ONE becomes Line TWO of the final Quatrain & Line ONE of Verse ONE becomes Line FOUR of the final Quatrain. In this way every LINE is repeated ONCE and the Poem *begins & ends* with the same LINE ~ OK

      Blessings & Joy & Peace to YOU & YOURS
      Con Amor - Angela - Btrian y El Gato Ahumido ! ! !

    • orchidee

      Good write B&A. 'The valleys stand so thick with corn, That even they are singing'. Lines of a hymn - cue for harvest-time poem or two from me?! Too early yet? Or Harvest - mid-Sept to mid-Oct?

      • ANGELA & BRIAN

        • Fay Slimm.

          Your pantoum does credit to the early rising of farmers and gathers and dear duo your rhyme adds flavour to the needed harvesting so top marks for thinking of those working hard to get what is ripe before October rains begin.

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            Thanks FAY ~ pleased you enjoyed the presentation ! Most of the Farmers we know are on the back-foot ~ trying to keep pace with the Seasons.

            Blessings & Peace & Joy
            Love A & B & Smokey

          • Michael Edwards

            I loved the wurzels and a great write A&B

            • ANGELA & BRIAN

              Thanks Uncle Mike - You*re old enough to remember the WURZELS - I think that was recorded in 1976 - before our time ! Pleased you enjoyed it!

              Blessings & Peace to YOU & YOURS
              Love Angela & Brian & Smokey ! ! !

            • L. B. Mek

              '*Rhyme while you May* Muse may not stir again !'
              I'm sure this line reads true, for so many writers

              • ANGELA & BRIAN

                YES INDEED FRIEND ~ We cannot move Our Muse ~ Our Muse moves us ~ We cannot write Poetry to ORDER ! When runing *Poetry Classes for Seniors* ~ If I give them a week to write in a STYLE (say ACROSTIC) I get 100% return. However if I give them a SUBJECT say BRIDGES ( get a reduced return (say 66%) some say ther *MUSE was MUTE* and others write On *CONTRACT BRIDGE* because that was an interest !
                John Bettjaman ~ One of the best UK Poet Lauraetes of the 20th C - hated being told what to write about ! When Princess Anne read his EULOGY for Her Wedding She said *I thought itwas a Bigger Ocassion tnan that !* The Poem was AWEFUL not AWESOME ! Andrew Mortons Poem - For Charles & Camilla - Was ECELLENT and Prince Charles really liked it ~ AMEN

                Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
                Love Angela & Brian & Smokey ! ! !
